What You Need to Know About Suing Your Employer

Have you been injured at work, and your employer is not providing you the compensation you deserve?

At Julie O Legal, we understand how challenging it can be to face a workplace injury, especially when your employer is not cooperating. That’s why we want to help you understand your rights and the steps you can take to file a lawsuit and obtain the justice you deserve.

In what cases can you sue your employer?

It’s important to note that California is a “No-fault” state regarding workers’ compensation. This means that, in most cases, it’s unnecessary to prove that your employer was negligent in not being entitled to benefits.

However, there are some exceptions in which you can file a lawsuit against your employer:

  • Discrimination: If your employer discriminated against you based on your race, gender, religion, age, or any other characteristic protected by law, which resulted in an injury, you can file a discrimination lawsuit.
  • Harassment: If you were a victim of workplace harassment, whether physical, verbal, or sexual, and this caused you psychological or emotional injury, you can file a harassment lawsuit.
  • Violations of labor safety laws: If your employer violated any labor safety laws and this resulted in an injury, you can file a lawsuit for violations of labor safety laws.
  • Intentional harm: If your employer intentionally harmed you, you can file a lawsuit for deliberate damage.
