Protection for Injured Workers
Termination Due to a Workplace Injury is Unlawful
One of the greatest fears most people have after suffering a workplace injury is the fear of termination. If your injury has made it impossible for you to return to work either temporarily or permanently, you may be afraid of being fired. However, Section 132a. of the California Labor Code declares such action as unlawful. If your employer has discharged or threatened to discharge you as a result of any injury you have sustained, they may be considered guilty of a misdemeanor. With the assistance of a Walnut Creek workers' comp attorney, you may be able to file a lawsuit against them and demand that justice be served.
If you have been injured on the job, don't be afraid of termination. Instead, make sure that you are prepared to defend yourself in case your employer breaks the law. Even if they do not threaten to terminate your employment, they may attempt to minimize the amount of compensation you receive, but you have rights as an employee through the California Labor Code to fight for maximum compensation. Defend those rights today! Contact the Law Offices of Jonathan Brand today for counsel and assistance in filing a workers' comp claim.
