Employee Rights Litigation For Los Angeles County And The San Fernando Valley
Under California law, workers injured on the job may apply for medical treatment and wage benefits through their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance coverage. By filing a claim, the injured worker forfeits the right to sue the employer for any further damages. However, when a worker files a claim, the employer’s workers’ comp insurance premiums may increase, so many employers fight back and try to deny the claim or fire the injured worker.

We are not a California workers’ compensation claims service. We protect the rights of workers who have suffered employer retaliation or discrimination because they filed a lawful claim for workers’ comp benefits.
Workers’ compensation wrongful termination or retaliation is illegal. You may be able to sue for compensation if you can answer yes to any of these questions:
- Has your supervisor or employer warned you against filing an injury report?
- Did your employer refuse to report your injury to the workers’ comp insurance carrier?
- Did your employer order you to return to work prior to your doctor’s approval?
- After you returned to work, did you get demoted or switched to an undesirable job?
- Has your employer denied you a promotion based on your workers’ compensation claim?
- Did your employer terminate your position while you were off work for workers’ compensation?
- If your company had a general lay off during your recovery period away from work, did your employer deny your unemployment benefits?
- Have you received a negative job performance review based on filing the claim?
- Has your employer created a hostile work environment in an effort to force you to quit?
