One fear that many workers have is that they may be terminated if they assert their rights under the workers' compensation system after they have been injured. This is often an unfounded fear. However, should an injured worker be terminated while he or she is exercising his or her rights under the workers' compensation system, that person has several legal tools to help him or her recover compensation, including:
- California Labor Code §132a — Under §132a, employers are prohibited from discriminating against, including terminating, injured workers who are unable to return to work at all or who are unable to return to work in a limited capacity.
- Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) — The ADA requires employers provide disabled workers with reasonable accommodations. When employers fail to act as required by the ADA, a person can pursue a case for disability discrimination.
Our experienced attorneys are skilled at utilizing all applicable means to hold employers accountable when they terminate workers who are pursuing workers' compensation claims.
