California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Good morning Gaylord,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.While I believe I understand your situation, I'm unclear as to what I can help you with. What legal questions do you have for me?Doug
I was put on restricted work duties after suffering from a work related injury which resulted in subsequent surgery and rehabilitation. After returning to work they informed me they have no work available because of my status. If I wasn't injured at work I would still be healthy and able to work. I have received no settlement of any kind and now I have been forced to retire. Since I'm not eligible for full retirement I will only receive $800 per month and not able to work because of my injury. Can they do this? Isn't there a law against dicrimination because I'm now partially disabled?
