Meningitis is a serious, life-threatening condition caused by inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. Many CA employees suffer from meningitis. The most common symptoms of meningitis are headache and neck stiffness, fever, confusion or altered consciousness, and an inability to tolerate light or loud noises. It is crucial that you visit your doctor as soon as any of these symptoms start to receive antibiotics and further treatment.
If your meningitis is a recognized medical disability, your CA employer must provide you with reasonable accommodations for your disability. This includes allowing you to miss work for doctor’s appointments, among other accommodations. Additionally, your employer cannot discriminate against you because you suffer from meningitis. An experienced employment lawyer can go over what is and is not discrimination in the California workplace.
If you are a CA employee who suffers from meningitis and you believe that because of your recognized medical disability you have been the victim of medical discrimination at your job, call the legal team of Law Offices of David H.
