Disability Rights

Under California law, if an employee suffers from a disability or medical condition requiring time off or a medical leave of absence, employers may be required to provide that time off or additional medical leave time as a reasonable accommodation for that disability even if the employee has already used 12 weeks of FMLA leave.

 

Under California law, employees with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations, including medical leaves of absence, and extensions of medical leaves of absence. Unless an employer can prove that a requested accommodation would impose an undue hardship on its operations, California employers will be held liable for failing to provide any accommodation that would have permitted an employee to return to work and perform their essential job functions. The lawyers at the Balderama Law Firm have obtained monetary settlements and awards on behalf of employees with disabilities who were denied accommodations, including time off or medical leave of absence.
