Defending Your Business Against 132a Discrimination Claims

In California, there are protections for employees who file workers' compensation claims. Employers are not allowed to discriminate or retaliate against those who have filed or intend to file a workers' comp claim. California Labor Code Section 132a calls for substantial penalties with an additional 50 percent increase on the compensation awarded to those employees in situations where discrimination is present.

At the Law Offices of Louis B. Papell, part of our practice is dedicated to employment discrimination defense. Our founding attorney, Louis B. Papell, has been handling 132a claims for employers for 15 years. We understand the laws that apply to employers in these situations, and we know how to find solutions that limit your potential liability under these laws.

Your company will be held responsible for any penalties that are imposed due to a finding of discrimination or retaliation. Workers' comp insurance companies do not cover 132a claims, so it is important that you are ready to offer up a strong defense if you find your company facing these allegations.

We are committed to helping you devise a strategy that is focused on your specific goals. We immediately take charge in your case, looking for a way to limit the amount of compensation that you will be forced to pay. We work hard to find a timely resolution to these claims so that you are able to return your attention to the needs of your business.
