Disability discrimination is the unequal treatment of an individual based on a real or perceived disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Rehabilitation Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) prohibit discrimination because of disability in employment. The rules prohibiting discrimination in the workplace apply to all aspects of employment. Persons with disabilities cannot be subjected to different job requirements and employment qualifications cannot be designed to eliminate people with disabilities. Disabled employees cannot be segregated, treated differently (other than to accommodate their needs), or deprived of benefits available to other employees.
