California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Good evening Jose,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs.I have been a CA licensed, litigation attorney for more than 30 years, and I have handled several thousand cases----many of them employment law cases I handled on behalf of employees. What you are asking for----given the voluminous facts and allegations------- is all but impossible to respond to adequately in this written format, and in my experience it is only practical to approach your issues in a phone conversation.If you are interested, for a nominal charge I can offer you a phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread. If you are not interested just let me know and I will be happy to opt out. Perhaps someone else would be willing to tackle your request.
I can assure you, you have wasted nothing. All you did was make a deposit which you may get back any time you want. If you need assistance navigating the system or if you have billing questions, you can contact customer service at(###) ###-####
I was simply trying to help you with an extremely complex legal problem. I am very experienced in handling CA employment law litigation.
I understand if you don't want a phone call. Unfortunately, I am at the end of my work day and I am not in a position to spend a couple of hours online with you writing back and forth. Perhaps another expert will.
I am going to opt out of your question and open this up for other professionals.
Your question is being placed back in the question list for other professionals to see, and to respond to. You do not have to stay online for the question to be active. Should another professional pick it up, you should be alerted by email unless you actively disable this feature.There is no need for you to reply at this time as this may "lock" your question back to me, thus inadvertently delaying other professionals' access to it.I apologize for any inconvenience and wish you well in your future.Doug
My name is***** and I am happy to help. It seems to me that you are being retaliated against for taking sick leave. It also appears to me that the employer has created a hostile work environment which is partially why you had to take leave in the first place. Were there any prior incidents of discrimination or hostile conduct? You need to contact a local attorney who can possibly pursue two claims- retaliation amd hostile work environment. Employment is generally at will meaning and employer can let you go anytime but they cannot do it to retaliate for perfectly legal conduct and they cannot create a hostile work environment. Let me knkw if you have any specific questions.
Let me know if you have any additional questions.
