There are few things more devastating to an employer and their business’s reputation than claims of discrimination. Unfortunately, these claims are often frivolous and not based in reality, yet they can still have a significant impact on a business. One of the most common discrimination claims we see our business owner clients face is disability discrimination. Please continue reading and reach out to a competent Los Angeles discrimination defense attorney from the Lee Law Offices to learn more about these claims and how we can fight for the future of your business. Here are some of the questions you may have:
Does California law favor employees who make claims of disability discrimination?
In most cases, California is an “employment at will” state, which means that employers can hire, or fire, any employee for any reason, as long as it’s not because of a protected characteristic, such as an employee’s race or a disability. That said, the state of California gives employees more leeway when it comes to bringing claims of discrimination against their employers, which, unfortunately, translates to lots of baseless lawsuits against employers that are often successful. This can be devastating to a business’s bottom line and reputation, which is why it is so important that anyone facing accusations of disability discrimination hires a competent discrimination defense lawyer.
