Walnut Creek Disability Discrimination Lawyer

Fighting For Those Who Have Experienced Discrimination Based on Their Disability in California

Disability discrimination in California refers to treating individuals with disabilities unfavorably in various aspects of life, including employment, housing, public accommodations, and education. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits discrimination based on disability, requiring employers and service providers to make reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities to ensure equal opportunities. Disabled individuals should not face discrimination or prejudice due to their disability, and they are entitled to equal treatment and access to various opportunities and services under the law.

What Proof Do I Need in a Disability Discrimination Case?

A statement from your healthcare provider outlining your disability and how it impacts your ability to perform job functions. Document any requests made for reasonable accommodations, including dates and details of those requests.
  • Employment Records: Copies of job descriptions, performance reviews, and employment contracts. Records of any disciplinary actions taken against you, especially if they occurred after you disclosed your disability or requested accommodations. Evidence of job duties and responsibilities before and after you disclosed your disability.
  • Correspondence: Emails, letters, or text messages between you and your employer discussing your disability and accommodation requests. Any written communication that indicates unfavorable treatment or discriminatory remarks related to your disability.
  • Witness Statements: Testimonies from coworkers, supervisors, or others who witnessed discriminatory actions or statements. Affidavits from individuals who can confirm the timeline of events and provide context for any adverse actions taken against you.
  • Comparative Evidence: Information showing how other employees without disabilities were treated similarly. Records indicating any disparities in opportunities, promotions, pay, or benefits compared to those without disabilities.
  • Company Policies: Copies of the company’s disability and discrimination policies and any evidence showing that these policies were not followed in your case. Documentation of the company’s procedures for handling accommodation requests and how they were applied in your situation.
  • Performance Evidence: Records demonstrating your job performance before and after your disability disclosure. Evidence that contradicts any claims by the employer that performance issues were the basis for adverse actions.

  • “Highly Recommend”
    Highly recommend. Laid off without notice by a shady Pre IPO lender in San Francisco. No one was given severance and they hired a labor attorney ahead of the layoffs to try and get around paying severance and warn notice. Without this firm taking my case, I would have never received a dime. Do not let a lay off without any severance deter you, contact this firm. Odd thing was 1 letter from this firm and severance was immediately offered. It's a game these high-tech companies are playing and gambling on. Their bet is 98% will not do anything severance and for the small percent that do, the amount to pay versus provided all in the layoff, is pennies on the dollar. Get your documentation, all emails, take photos of slack messages, record any zoom calls where there is a statement " no one is getting laid off" and so forth. Records any zoom calls where you are laid off. Take notes. Protect yourself and family. Working all the holidays and 12-hour days to be let go with nothing, is ridiculous. Use this firm and provide all your documentation. Good Luck!

  • “Extremely Satisfied”
    I was referred to Ratner Molineaux after my daughter and I suffered injury and property damage resulting from a defective product in our home. During my very first conversation with David Ratner, I found him to be straightforward, professional, and extremely responsive to my concerns. Thereafter, David took the time to walk us through each and every stage of the litigation process and was an excellent advocate for my daughter and I. He remained fiercely protective of our interests and represented us well during mediation, preparation for trial, and settlement talks. David's style is very direct and to the point, which might be off putting for some, but worked well for me since I tend to be laser focused when dealing with business matters. Near the conclusion of my case, I had the opportunity to meet his partner Shelley, who had also diligently and effectively assisted with our litigation. In the end, our result was more than adequate, and both my daughter and I walked away extremely satisfied with both the representation we'd received, and the outcome of our claim. I definitely recommend this firm.
