Q: I was in disability status and my employer ignored my return to work now I am in laid off status What can I do?
I open a case with the California Fair Employment and housing.but this is just taking too long any help would be appreciated Thank You.
A: Hello. It's possible that you have a potential disability discrimination claim, especially if the lay-off status is just a "mask" for discriminatory firing. More information is needed however to determine whether there is sufficient evidence to pursue a case. I wouldn't expect too much from DFEH. In most cases, they just issue a right to sue letter. Thanks, and feel free to follow up.
A: To enforce your rights, you have probably figured out that you will need to consult with an attorney one-on-one. There are several law firms in your area that do this work regularly.
