  • Case name:
    A.M. v. Albertsons, LLC.
    Date:
    10/15/2009
    Note:
    Under the FEHA, the failure to accommodate and the failure to engage in the interactive process in determining a reasonable accommodation for a known physical disability are separate claims. Once a reasonable accommodation has been granted, the employer has a duty to provide that accommodation. Failure to do so, even on a single occasion, can support a cause of action for damages sustained by the failure as this is in line with the intent of the FEHA and the public policies behind the provision.
