Customer Question
Hi: I chatted and...

Hi: I chatted and started to give the attorney my information and put the deposit of $5.00 to come back and do it since something came up.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

I spoke with you earlier Pearl Wilson.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not yet remember I had to stop the chat but I gave you all my information.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I just want to know if it is legal in the state of California to fire an employee when they are connecting state disability and what action my friend can take. Also her manager did NOT tell H.R. and she did not know what to do. Her manager never told my friend you have to take these actions. So now she has been terminated from her job.

Is your question whether it's legal to fire someone for collecting disability or is it legal to fire someone for having a disability. The first one is not illegal (although I don't know why they'd do that...) while the second one is.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
