When you have a disability that affects an important function, yet you are still able to perform your job duties, your employer must provide “reasonable accommodation” that allows you to do your job. Depending on the nature of the disability, this accommodation could be something as simple as providing a large computer screen or an adjustable height work surface.
It is important in such cases to understand the employer’s motivation as well as other important facts. When a person notifies the employer about a disability or medical condition, the employer has an obligation to learn about the condition and make reasonable accommodation. This mandatory process is called the good faith interactive process and is required of California employers that have been given notice of a disabling or potentially disabling condition.
If the employer fails to accommodate or to engage in the good faith interactive process and instead forces you to work without accommodation, terminates your employment or discriminates against you in other ways, you may have a claim under federal and California laws.
