Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking & Employment: An Introduction to State and Federal Disability Laws

Domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking survivors often have physical or mental health disabilities that are caused or exacerbated by abuse. Under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, survivors with disabilities are entitled to a workplace free of discrimination and harassment and may be eligible for workplace reasonable accommodations for their disabilities, including a reduced work schedule, a leave of absence from work, or a transfer to a different position.
