While these workers’ comp claims are pending, the employees still have rights under state and federal laws that cover disabled workers. The interplay between these laws is extremely confusing, and you need a lawyer who understands how to ensure that you get the protection you deserve.
The attorneys at The Law Offices of Laura J. Farris provided skilled representation solely to employees with employment law concerns. We know that the actions of your employer have put you in a very difficult position, and we are not going to be intimidated by them. We have helped thousands of workers across Southern California, and we are committed to working together with you to hold your employer responsible for withholding your rights.
In many of these cases, employers refuse to provide you with the information that you need to determine all of the opportunities available to you. They let the workers’ compensation case play out, and then move on once that case has been decided. They do not tell you that you may have additional claims or protections afforded to you because of your disability.
Our attorneys know the law and how it will apply to your situation. We will meet directly with you to review what your employer has done in your case. We will then discuss the potential things that we can do to take advantage of your rights under state and federal law, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Employers may be extremely aggressive in their attempts to limit the amount of benefits you receive or the accommodations that they put in place to help you deal with your disability in the workplace. Do not simply take their word for it. You need to have an experienced professional review your case.
