Nadaf-Rahrov v. Neiman Marcus Grp., Inc., 166 Cal. App. 4th 952, 83 Cal. Rptr. 3d 190 (2008)

A former employee brought action against employer for employment discrimination based on disability, national origin, and ethnicity in violation of Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), for retaliation in violation of FEHA, and for wrongful termination in violation of public policy. The Superior Court, City and County of San Francisco, No. 437680, Ronald Evans Quidachay, J., and Bruce E. Chan, Commissioner, granted summary judgment for employer. Employee appealed. The Court of Appeal, Reardon, J., held that: 1 fact issue existed as to whether employee was able to work; 2 physician’s opinion that employee could work in specified job positions was not inadmissible or purely speculative; but 3 discovery as to all vacant positions at all of employer’s stores was properly denied; but 4 limiting discovery to only two stores where employee had worked was abuse of discretion; but 5 FEHA “reasonable accommodation” requirement applies only where employee can perform essential job functions with or without accommodation; 6 employee bears burden of proving ability to perform essential job functions; 7 FEHA “interactive process” requirement applies only where reasonable accommodation is possible; 8 employee bears burden of proving reasonable accommodation is possible; but 9 fact issue existed as to whether employer bore responsibility for breakdowns in interactive process; but 10 employer’s proffered reasons for firing employee were not pretext for retaliation; but 11 employee established prima facie case of national origin and ethnicity discrimination; and 12 fact issue existed on national origin and ethnicity discrimination.
