In my case I lost 36 hours pay over a suspension I received over the same issue I filed a claim to CALOSHA about. So if I understand you correctly I should file with DLSE for my loss?
When I read the following this would fall under CALOSHA who would in turn be connected with the Labor Board wouldn't it?
c) If the Labor Commissioner determines a violation has occurred, he or she shall notify the complainant and respondent and direct the respondent to cease and desist from the violation and take any action deemed necessary to remedy the violation, including, where appropriate, rehiring or reinstatement, reimbursement of lost wages and interest thereon, payment of reasonable attorney's fees associated with any hearing held by the Labor Commissioner in investigating the complaint, and the posting of notices to employees. If the respondent does not comply with the order within 10 working days following notification of the Labor Commissioner's determination, the Labor Commissioner shall bring an action promptly in an appropriate court against the respondent.(CA Labor Code 98.7)
So being that I filed a claim with CALOSHA the above would apply automatically?
