In California, you are considered disabled if you have a condition that limits one or more major life activities, i.e. the condition or disability limits (makes more difficult) your ability to engage in a major life activity such as breathing, seeing, walking, caring for yourself, working, socializing, reading, eating, digesting, hearing, speaking, etc. Disabilities can be physical or mental such as developmental disorders, organic brain syndrome, emotional or mental illness, or specific learning disabilities. They can be readily apparent such as being wheelchair-bound, using a cane, being disfigured or having an amputated body part, or they can be subtle such as medical issues, heart problems, breathing difficulties, depression, anxiety, gastrointestinal difficulties, sleep apnea, etc.
If you are a victim of unlawful workplace discrimination, harassment or wrongful termination as a result of your medical issue or disability, we can help you in multiple ways.
