Medical Condition Lawyers in San Diego

Do You Need Reasonable Accommodation for Your Medical Condition?

If you have a medical condition that requires changes in your work schedule, tasks, workspace, or other workplace conditions, your employer may be required to provide reasonable accommodation. At Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, we work for clients whose employers have failed to do so by aggressively pursuing their best interests.

If your employer has failed to make a reasonable accommodation at work for your medical condition, they may be violating the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family Medical Leave Act, or other statutes put in place to protect you from harm. Reach out to a medical condition lawyer in San Diego as soon as possible so you have a chance at receiving fair and just compensation.

Contact Haeggquist & Eck, LLP to hold an employer accountable or call (619) 468-5222 for help today! We offer free case evaluations and the possibility of a same-day appointment with one of our attorneys.

How Does the ADA Protect Me?

There are many provisions in the Americans with Disabilities Act that could be applicable to an employee with a medical condition. Some of the most relevant are those that can require employers to offer workers extended unpaid leave to recover from a medical procedure. Although an employee needing this time receives it without pay, they should be protected from losing their employment.

Likewise, the ADA permits employees with medical conditions to request later start times or more rest periods throughout the day to accommodate routine medical treatments.

Other reasonable accommodations can be made, such as:

  • Special equipment
  • Changes in office layout
  • Adjustment to workspaces
  • Reserved parking

If you have a medical condition protected by the ADA, contact Haeggquist & Eck, LLP if your employer is failing to make reasonable accommodations. Call us for a free case evaluation: (619) 468-5222.
