Protection for Injured Workers

The Law Protects Your Rights as a Worker

Most employees are not familiar with the specific laws that protect their rights until they are in a situation where their rights are violated and it is too late. Employees are the most vulnerable to being taken advantage of after they have suffered a serious injury, and there are specific laws that were established to protect their rights in those situations. Workers' compensation law was adopted in California during the 1920's to provide benefits for work-related injuries regardless of who is at fault.

Injured workers in Oakland are also protected under California's Labor Code Section 132a, which states that there shall be no discrimination against injured workers. Unfortunately, this law has failed to live up to its promise and injured workers who claim discrimination under this law typically run into many limitations. If you have suffered a work-related injury, you should enlist the help of an Oakland workers' comp attorney who will passionately defend your rights.

Employees in Oakland can also seek protection under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). This Act delineates the specifics for discrimination against a person with a physical disability, but workers compensation judges to not enforce FEHA law. One of the only ways to ensure that your rights are being protected is with the knowledgeable assistance of a workers' comp lawyer. Established in 1989, The Law Offices of Jonathan M. Brand remains firmly committed to protecting employees after they have been injured on the job.
