California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
While I can certainly appreciate your frustration, lawsuits are premised on a breach of legal duty. The state of CA does not have any legal duty to convert part-time employees to full time, and so no legal duty would be breached under the circumstances you describe. Since there is no breach of legal duty, there is no basis for a lawsuit for damages. Thus, I'm afraid to say an employee in your circumstance would have no legal recourse as a result of the missed benefits.
I hope that you find this information helpful and am genuinely sorry if it is not what you were hoping to hear. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
