COVID-19 IS NOT AN EXCUSE FOR DISCRIMINATION BASED ON DISABILITIES

COVID-19 has changed our world, at least temporarily. Many businesses are closed. Those that are open are requiring work-from-home or special accommodations for onsite employees. Hospitals are overwhelmed. That might be causing discrimination for people with disabilities.
People with disabilities are vulnerable to the virus. Yet, they are dealing with inequities at work and barriers when they try to get needed health care. The pandemic does not change discrimination laws. If you are facing COVID-19-related discrimination based on disability in Southern California, call the experienced, compassionate attorneys at Diefer Law Group.

OFFICIALS HAVE WARNED HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS NOT TO DISCRIMINATE

Health care facilities across the country have faced allegations that they are violating the rights of people with disabilities. There are limited beds, ventilators and medications available. Some facilities are giving people with disabilities a lower priority. That is discrimination.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has warned healthcare agencies not to discriminate against people who have existing disabilities.
