By enacting Labor Code Section 132a, the State of California made it public policy that employees who file workers' compensation claims should not suffer discrimination or adverse employment actions. Employers who do discriminate or retaliate against employees because they have filed workers' compensation claims or have indicated their intention to do so, face the possibility of costly fines and employee lawsuits. SLT Law 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. SLT Law thoroughly investigates the accident and injury, the employer's human resources policies and procedures, and the exact events leading up to the discharge or other challenged employment actions. By building a defense from the ground up, SLT Law maximizes the likelihood of a favorable outcome.
