Customer Question

I work for a school dist. as an instruc. Aide. I have been continually harassed. Ultimately, physically attacked by my school secretary resulting in injuring me. They are circling the wagons because I filed 2 incident reports along with submitting 2 workers comp forms. I started having panic attacks after hearing my principal threaten me with direct retaliation for filing the forms. I really need some help and protection. I'm not sure what to do. Please help!1

The California Fair Employment and Housing Act protects employees from retaliation for filing workers comp forms. AN attorney through the California Employment Lawyers Association could provide you with a referral to a competent employee rights attorney to determine if a lawsuit would be the best avenue for you.

It looks like the employer is violating the law in connection to the way you are being treated.
