How California Law Protects You If You Sue Your Employer
It’s unpleasant to consider suing your employer, but sometimes you have no other recourse. Some employees may hesitate before pursing legal action because they fear the process, length of a lawsuit, retaliation from their employer, and how the lawsuit could impact employment with other companies. Corbett H. Williams can ease your mind about suing an employer, and as an employee in the state of California, you’re entitled to certain powerful protections if your case involves a legitimate claim.
How California Protects You
There are a few common concerns people have when they consider suing their employer. One primary concern is whether their employer will retaliate or treat them differently once they are aware of the lawsuit. However, it is against the law for employers (both current and future) to retaliate, treat employees differently or unfairly, or fire employees because they pursued legal action. In the state of California, employees are protected from this.
The costs involved may also be a concern, as well as the length of time it will take to reach a settlement in your case. The law offices of Corbett H.
