COVID-19 Termination Lawyer

Top Legal Representation for Employees Affected by COVID-19 Throughout California

The COVID-19 outbreak has changed the work situations for and taken a terrible toll on hundreds of thousands of people in California. The COVID-19 outbreak may have affected you in many ways.

Employees who develop COVID-19 may become disabled because of COVID-19, especially those with an underlying condition (for instance, asthma, diabetes, or a heart condition.) COVID-19 is a physical disability. The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibits discrimination based on a disability. Discrimination can include any adverse employment action, including failure to hire, demotion, or termination.

You should not be terminated because you or a loved one (e.g. a family member) developed COVID-19. You should not be terminated because you requested an accommodation because you or a loved one was at risk of becoming severely ill from exposure to COVID-19 through the workplace.

Further, your employer should not terminate you because it perceives you to have COVID-19 or they suspect you are associated with a person who has COVID-19.
