Failure to Accommodate a Disability

If you have a physical or mental disability-defined as a medical condition which limits a major activity of your life- and have requested an accommodation from your employer, your employer has a legal duty to reasonably accommodate your disability. The request for the accommodation must come from a physician that identifies the restrictions and the specific accommodation that is needed for the medical condition.

Once you present the accommodation request to your employer, the employer is required to engage in an “interactive process” to evaluate possible reasonable accommodations that comply with the restrictions provided by your physician.

If you believe that your employer has not acted in good faith with the reasonable accommodation process or has failed to propose a reasonable accommodation that allows you to perform the duties of your employment, you may have a claim under FEHA for failure to accommodate a disability and/or for failure to engage in an interactive process.

Please contact our law office for a free consultation and evaluation of your case.
For a proper and thorough evaluation, it is recommended that you submit a timeline of events that you believe support your claim via email.
