People with disabilities get protected by federal and state laws. The federal law is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Table of Contents:
Disabled people shall not be discriminated against in any way, shape, or form. But it goes further than you may believe.
The employer gets required to make reasonable accommodations for the employee with disabilities. California employers must provide “reasonable accommodations” for employees with disabilities or illness. Disability discrimination may occur if companies make only partial accommodations.
Usually, they do this and then fire the employee. The person with a disability or illness can inform the supervisor for human resources. So if they require unique accommodation, that is the first step.
There are laws in place to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities residing in, or employed in California. These are the federal American with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).
So they protect the person with disabilities so that handicapped people can have a livelihood.
These laws also protect employees with severe medical conditions. So that way, they can perform the essential functions entailed with the job.

Hence, employees with disabilities get protected under the law. And this is including the American Disabilities Act. In effect, the employer in fulfilling their duty must discuss employee needs.

Also, accommodations enable employees with disabilities to perform their job-related duties. So this gives disabled employees the same opportunities and benefits as other employees.
But there is a limit to their duties under the law.
