    Date:
    08/24/2009

    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.

    In regards to negligence claims. No civil action will stand where a claimant alleges facts that place the claim squarely within the purview of workers' compensation statutes, and fails to allege facts negating the exclusivity rule.
