9 Questions Answered
Q. I have a work related lawsuit On my family member who is my uncle .he reached out to me and wants to settle without La
A: It is unclear from your question if you are being represented by an attorney or not. If you represent yourself, you can settle and dismiss the case. However, if you are being represented by an attorney, you cannot settle with your employer behind your attorney's back. Your attorney has a lien on your case. If you retained the attorney, your attorney can settle the case and dismiss the case upon your authorization. If you represent yourself, I suggest you consult with an employment law attorney who will advise you on your settlement and explain other options. You can look either on this site in the Find a Lawyer section or go to California Employment Layers Association (www.cela.org), an organization whose members are committed to representing employee’s rights. Most employment law attorneys in California offer free of charge initial consultations, and thereafter may take your case on a contingency basis, meaning you do not have to pay attorney’s fees unless and until there is a positive outcome for you. They may also advance either all or partial costs of litigation. Sincerely, Maya L. Serkova Sincerely, Maya L. Serkova
Q. I’m a federal employee and going to refuse the vaccine mandate. If fired, will this violate laws meant to protect me?
A: Mandatory workplace COVID – 19 Vaccinations are lawful with some exceptions based on disability and religion. If you are not eligible for those exemptions and still chose to refuse to get a vaccine, your employer will be within its right to terminate you and you will not have recourse. Sincerely, Maya L. Serkova
Q. What are proper steps to take ? Should I get a lawyer first?
A: You are entitled to recover all wages you think are owed to you plus the waiting time penalties. Complaining about the missing wages is a protected activity and it is unlawful to terminate an employee for engaging in this activity. You have a few options available to you. You can send a demand to your employer or hire an attorney to send a demand for you or file a lawsuit, you can also file an administrative wage claim with the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement. Each of these options has pros and cons. I suggest you consult with an experienced employment law attorney who will further examine your situation and explain what option is better for you.
