ABOUT MEDICAL CONDITION AND DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION LAW IN LOS ANGELES

Under California law it is illegal for employers with 5 or more employees to terminate, discriminate, or retaliate against an employee because of their actual, perceived, or past history of a medical condition or disability.  The law forbids discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, job assignments, promotions, layoff, training, fringe benefits, and any other term or condition of employment.

Disability is defined very broadly under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (‘FEHA”) and includes pretty much anything that would prevent someone from working or significantly affecting their daily activities even if short in duration.  Conditions like a cold or sore throat do not apply, but most others do, including the flu and morning sickness.  

Mental and psychological conditions are also protected, not just physical conditions.  These include anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc…

Additional leave protections for disabled employees or those with medical needs (or those of their immediate family members) are available under California’s Family Rights Act (“CFRA”) as well as other Federal and state laws.
