California Law, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protect individuals with disabilities from employment discrimination. An individual with a disability is defined under California law as someone who has a physical or mental impairment that limits a major life activity, has a record of having such a physical or mental impairment, or is regarded as having such impairment. The term is broadly defined to include any physiological, mental or psychologically-based impairment.
An employer must engage in the interactive process (i.e., talk to the employee) to figure out a reasonable accommodation that will enable the employee to perform his/her job.
