Work-Related Injuries

Coming Soon. In California, workers who are injured on the job must generally seek compensation for such injuries from administrative judges employed by the California Division of Workers' Compensation pursuant to the California Workers' Compensation Act.

However, a worker who is discriminated against because of a disability which resulted from an injury at work may bring a lawsuit for disability discrimination in a California State Superior Court under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. The California Workers' Compensation Act does not prevent such lawsuits. Similarly, an employee may sue his employer in a California State Superior Court for injuries which result from his employer's failure to provide him with a reasonable accommodation of his disability.

It is illegal for an employer to ask an applicant for employment whether he has ever received workers' compensation.
