Wrongful Termination Claims in Oakland
Employee Discrimination under the California Labor Code
According to the California Labor Code Section 132a, an employer is prohibited by law from discriminating against an employee because of a workplace injury. Many accidents in the workplace cause an employee to be injured in such a way that they cannot return to work for an extended period of time; or they are able to return, but cannot perform at the same level as before their injury. If you have suffered an injury and your employer is threatening to terminate your employment-or they have already done so-know your rights. Hire a Walnut Creek workers' compensation attorney today and fight for justice.
Forms of Wrongful Termination
Whether you have been already been fired because of your injury, or your employer is threatening to discharge you because of your injury or injury-related disability, they are breaking the law and you have every right to demand compensation.

If your employment has been terminated or you are being threatened with termination because of any of the above, get legal help right away.

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.
