Daniel chammas what you need to know about disability discrimination

  1. 1. What You Need to Know About Disability Discrimination Daniel Chammas
  2. 2. Daniel Chammas was quoted on SHRM Online (Society of Human Resource Management) on the rise in disability bias claims in California. According to him, the rise in disability bias claims was mainly due to an increased awareness on the part of the plaintiff’s bar that California’s definition of a protected disability is more favorable to employees than the federal definition in the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  3. 3. He believes that the economic situation is a contributing factor to the rise in claims. He said that given the number of layoffs that have taken place, “a lot of workers are more desperate and willing to do more things to try and keep their jobs.” He said that many workers try to enclose themselves in a bubble, and think that if they are away from work on disability leave, they will not be touched. He added that if the worker is then terminated by the company, they may go ahead and claim disability discrimination.
  4. 4. Here are three things you need to know about disability discrimination: 1. Covered Impairment The disability impairment can be mental or physical; however, pregnancy, weight and height, and homosexuality are not considered as disabilities, though pregnancy falls under another category of discrimination.
  5. 5. 2. Covered Employer If your employer has more than 15 employees, only then is it bound by the Americans With Disabilities Act. Your state or county might have other anti-discrimination laws for smaller employers. 3. Major Life Activities Your disability should limit you from performing major life activities such as walking, caring for yourself, hearing, seeing, performing manual tasks, standing, sitting, working, thinking, lifting, breathing, concentrating, interacting with others, and learning.
  6. 6. According to Daniel Chammas, “If you are on leave for a condition that keeps you from working at your job, you can make an argument that you are disabled and your employer has to reasonably accommodate you.”
