ADA & FEHA

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) protects the disabled from discrimination at work and their "right to fully participate in all aspects of society." The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the federal agency charged with enforcement. The ADA was amended in 2008 "to make it easier for an individual seeking protection under the ADA to establish that he or she has a disability within the meaning of the ADA."

California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) "bans employment discrimination on the bases of age (40 and over), ancestry, color, religious creed, disability (mental and physical) including HIV and AIDS, marital status, medical condition (cancer and genetic characteristics), national origin, race, sex, and sexual orientation. The FEHA covers California employers with five or more employees. Only one employee is needed for a sexual harassment claim.
