Federal anti-disability discrimination laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA), as well as the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), all provide certain provisions that would prevent covered employers from subjecting their employees with various medical conditions to wrongful termination or any adverse employment decision.
