California Labor Code Section 132a

Labor code

Under California Labor Code Section 132a, employers are prohibited from discriminating against industrially-injured employees. The Labor Code section prohibits employers from terminating employees on leaves of absence because of occupational injury or illness.

State policy dictates that there can be no discrimination against workers who are injured in the course and scope of their employment. If you have been wrongfully terminated or discriminated against because of an occupational injury or illness, you have the right to file a lawsuit against your employer and recover damages. A qualified and experienced employment attorney at The Nourmand Law Firm can evaluate your case and will aggressively fight for your rights in court.
