The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against individuals with a disability in all areas of public life. Title I of the act focuses specifically on employment discrimination. Title I of the ADA is meant to provide those with disabilities equal employment opportunities. According to the ADA, a disability is a physical or mental impairment that limits someone's ability to perform one or more major life activities. Those covered under Title I may also be eligible to receive reasonable accommodations from their employers as long as it does not cause them undue hardship. Reasonable accommodations are any changes or modifications to a job or work environment that allows for someone with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities.

The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) is a state anti-discrimination law that prohibit discrimination in employment and housing against anyone who identifies under a protected category. Included in the list of protected categories listed by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) is a physical or mental disability, meaning individuals with disabilities are protected from discrimination under this law. The FEHA also requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities. California law requires employers to engage in an interactive process with someone who requests reasonable accommodations. This process involves an assessment by the employer of the job and the disability in relation to the reasonable accommodation requested. It is unlawful for an employer to engage in a timely and in good faith interactive process. While the ADA covers those who work for a company with 15 or more employees, the FEHA covers anyone at a company with 5 or more employees.

If an employee is unable to work for a period of time because of a disability, The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the California Family Rights Act (CFRA) are both acts that allow qualified employees to take up to 12 weeks of job protected, unpaid leave from work. Employees can also apply for State Disability Insurance (SDI) in order to receive payments while away from work for up to 52 weeks. For disabilities that last longer than 12 months or are life-long, an employee can apply for Social Security Disability Insurance where they can receive payments monthly until it has been determined that they are able to work again.
