DISCRIMINATION ON BASIS OF PERCIEVED DISABILITY

California has a clear public policy against discrimination also prohibits discrimination based on perception, accurate or not.

California Government Code §12926(o) states:

Race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, age, sexual orientation, or military and veteran status” includes a perception that the person has any of those characteristics or that the person is associated with a person who has, or is perceived to have, any of those characteristics.

If you believe that you are a victim of discrimination based on your employer’s perception, or if you believe that your Company is about to get sued for discrimination based on perception, you need to act quickly.
