California law prohibiting workplace disability bias should extend to companies hired by employers to conduct medical screenings of job applicants, the office of Attorney General Rob Bonta told the state's top court, reports Reuters. The attorney general filed an amicus brief on Oct. 6 with the California Supreme Court, which is considering the issue in a proposed class action accusing screening firm U.S. HealthWorks Medical Group of asking job applicants irrelevant questions about menstruation, hair loss and HIV status.
