Oakland Disability Discrimination Attorney
It is illegal for employers to discriminate against employees because of their disabilities. However, things can be complicated when employers point to other reasons for terminating or demoting an employee. Often, they point to “performance issues,” claiming that the person simply did not do a good job — not that the disability was the reason.
At the Law Offices of Felicia C. Curran, in Oakland, California, we uncover the hard-to-find evidence and build strong cases for our clients. We are dedicated to building winning disability discrimination cases, recovering the full and fair compensation that our clients deserve. Over the course of our history, we have recovered six- and seven-figure settlements and jury verdicts in these challenging cases.
There are many ways that employers discriminate against people with disabilities or histories of impairments, including:
- Failure to make reasonable accommodations for them
- Demoting or terminating them because of a disability
- Failure to promote because of a disability
- Discriminating against them for taking FMLA time
