The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The ADA is a federal law that protects individuals with disabilities from discrimination in all areas of public life, including employment, education, transportation, and access to government services. The ADA prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all stages of the employment process, from job application to hiring, promotion, salary, benefits, and termination. The ADA also requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities so that they can perform their job duties. You will want to call the Monrovia employment law firm, Romero Law, APC to help you with your case. It is illegal for employers to discriminate based on a disability.

The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA)
The FEHA is a state law that prohibits discrimination in employment, housing, and public accommodations on the basis of specified protected characteristics, including disability. If you are in Monrovia and feel like you are being discriminated against get legal help. The FEHA offers broader protection than the ADA, and it applies to employers with five or more employees. Under the FEHA, disabled individuals are entitled to reasonable accommodations in the workplace so that they can perform their job duties.
