Disabilities and Employee Benefits

The ADA and FEHA prohibit you from denying equal benefits to qualified applicants or employees with disabilities, including discriminatory allocations of fringe benefits, even if you do not administer these benefits.1 The ADA contains an equal access clause that prohibits employers from establishing policies that limit or segregate disabled people in any way. You cannot hire disabled individuals only for part-time positions while limiting benefits coverage to full-time employees.
