Disability Lawyers in San Diego

Advocates for People Living with Disabilities

If you live with a physical or mental disability and require a reasonable accommodation, you must inform your employer if the disability is not obvious. Your employer is then lawfully obligated to make the reasonable accommodation; if they fail to do so, they may be violating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and assistance from an attorney may be required to hold them accountable.

At Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, we tirelessly and aggressively fight for clients living with disabilities when their employers fail to make reasonable accommodations or otherwise discriminate against them at work. No one deserves to be disrespected or ignored in the workplace because their abilities differ from those of their coworkers, especially when your need for reasonable accommodations may be the only factor separating you from other equally qualified coworkers or job applicants.

When you need a disability attorney in San Diego on your side, contact Haeggquist & Eck, LLP online or call (619) 468-5222. We offer free case evaluations to help you understand how our services can work for you.

Which Accommodations Are Considered Reasonable?

If you have a mental or physical disability and work for an employer with 15 or more employees, there are a number of accommodations for you that may be considered acceptable.

You can reasonably request the following and more of an employer:

  • Improve workspace accessibility
  • Change how presentations and training materials are delivered
  • Provide or adjust a product, software, or equipment
  • Permit work schedule flexibility
  • Alter or change job tasks
  • Provide reserved parking

Any reasonable accommodation requests can result in the introduction of your service animal, alternate formats of important company materials, a checklist of daily tasks provided by the employer, reassignment of the employee to a vacant or new position that they are qualified to occupy.

If your employer refuses to make a reasonable accommodation for a mental or physical disability, contact Haeggquist & Eck, LLP to speak with a disability attorney in San Diego today.
