Texas, California, and Federal laws prohibit job discrimination and termination motivated by disability status. If an employee has a known or assumed disability, or a prior history of disability, it’s illegal to terminate employment based on assumptions that disability will impair the worker’s performance or attendance.
Also, employers are required by law to provide reasonable accommodations to assist the employee’s ability to perform essential job functions. If you are concerned that termination of employment is potentially motivated by disability discrimination, or whether accommodations are necessary and reasonable, contact Attorney Janovsky for a consultation.
