Protected by Rehabilitation Act and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employees should never feel unwelcome when applying for work. Many Americans mildly disabled still want to make their contribution to society, and still want hard day’s work – even though they may need extra accommodations. Another component of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act makes illegal for employers to terminate or mistreat you based on disability.
JML Law provides an exceptional level of representation, matching clients with an astute Los Angeles disability discrimination attorney capable of holding employers accountable for breaking antidiscrimination laws. Trusted around the Los Angeles County area for over 40 years, JML Law defends workers who may be disabled but desire nothing more than contributing to the greater good.
Laws Protect Disabled Workers
Employers, regardless if the disability is apparent or perceived, must make reasonable accommodations so disabled employees can perform duties at or above company standards. Unless accommodating disabled persons causes undue hardship on the employer, specialized work schedules and physical aids such as wheelchair ramps must be made available. JML Law has an exemplary track record of not only settling claims with compensation, but also helps restore employment to wrongfully terminated or mistreated employees.
The ADA clearly outlines ‘reasonable accommodations’ as those which:
- Aid disabled employees with accessibility to tools and literature to perform work;
- Provide facilities such as interpreters, enhanced readers, and restructured positions if necessary;
- Allow disabled employees modified or shorter work schedules.
An addendum to ADA was added to clarify language in its statutes. The ADA Amendments Act of 2008 expanded its definition of “major life activity”, clarified that an ADA disability deemed ‘episodic’ is still deemed an impairment, and allowed disabled employees discriminated against to seek civil action even if they were “regarded as” disabled.
Employees terminated due to their disability, or those discriminated against, have a 180-day window to file their claim with state agencies. Our firm can assist with filing complaints if we’re retained within that window.
Skilled in ADA and all facets of employment law, JML Law provides clients the best Los Angeles disability discrimination attorney with the greatest skill level and ability to fight cases vigorously until won.
Don’t Fight Discrimination Alone
Disabled persons are protected by ADA, ADAAA and other state and federal laws while at the workplace.

Workers with disabilities have just as much right to work peacefully amongst their peers as anyone else without disabilities. If you been victimized by another, JML Law works alongside you in your quest to seek justice.
Our firm commends you for being brave enough to attempt working. It’s already difficult for most disabled persons just wake up and face the day; our Los Angeles disability discrimination attorney can offer comprehensive representation which could restore your position and prestige, entitle you to back pay, recover money for pain and suffering.
