Disability Law - Harassed for a Disability - KW Story

KW was a hardworking employee who needed to take a medical leave because of her disability. She provided medical notes to her employer, but while still on medical leave, she was terminated

Prior to this, KW was subjected to constant disability harassment perpetrated by management for her medical condition. She was made fun of and ostracized because of her medical condition/disability. The harassment was so severe that it created a hostile and abusive work environment causing KW severe emotional distress. California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act prohibits an employer, including any supervisor, from harassing an employee based on medical condition or disability.
