Labor Code 132a - Employer Discrimination Claims

Strategic, Effective Defense Of Employers And Small Businesses

California places numerous employment law and insurance burdens on business enterprises. The best way to avoid problems in these areas is to comply with both the letter and spirit of the law. Sacks & Zolonz, LLP, provides counsel in these matters to employers.

When clients are accused of violations of California Labor Code Section 132a, the firm's attorneys energetically defend their rights and interests, with a proven record of results. The firm's goal in every case is to protect the rights and interests of the employer and to minimize or exclude any resulting penalties or award to the employee.

What Is California Labor Code 132a?

By enacting Labor Code Section 132a, the state of California made it public policy that employees who file workers' compensation claims should not suffer reprisals or discrimination.

Employers who do discriminate or retaliate against employees when they file workers' compensation claims or express their intention to do so face the prospect of employee lawsuits. Sacks & Zolonz defends clients facing these accusations of discrimination or retaliation.

Even if an employee was discharged for a legitimate business or personnel reason, the legitimate reason can be difficult to prove. By thoroughly investigating the accident and injury, the employer's human resources policies and procedures, and the exact events leading up to the discharge or other negative consequence, Sacks & Zolonz maximizes the chance for a favorable outcome.
