Employment Law Claims in Los Angeles
Employment law covers many legal issues that can arise and affect workers in Los Angeles and throughout California. Particularly, this area of law focuses on the relationship between an employer and the employee, and this relationship is regulated by various state and federal statutes, guidelines, and judicial decisions.
Some of the most common employment law issues that we help clients with include the following:
· Workplace discrimination based on a variety of characteristics, including a person’s:
o Race or color
o National origin
o Pregnancy status
o Genetic information
o Sexual orientation
o Gender identity

The ultimate goal of a successful employment law claim in Los Angeles is to recover various types of compensation for the wrong employee. This can include coverage of lost wages, lost benefits, attorneys fees, emotional and psychological distress, and more.
Workers’ Compensation Claims in Los Angeles
Anytime a person sustains an injury in the workplace, they should be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits in California. The workers’ compensation system is considered a “no-fault” insurance system, which means that a person will be entitled to certain benefits regardless of who caused the injury. This includes complete coverage of all medical expenses caused by the on-the-job injury, as well as a large percentage of any lost wages a person sustains due to the injury.
Unfortunately, there are times when insurance carriers or employers push back against workers’ comp claims, and this can significantly hurt a person’s finances.
Along with traditional workers’ compensation claims in Los Angeles, our law firm also helps individuals with third-party personal injury lawsuits that could arise as a result of a workplace injury.
Affording an Attorney for Your Case
We understand that many people do not contact an attorney for their claim because they think they cannot afford legal assistance. However, at ABDI & Associates, we proudly handle personal injury and employment law cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that our clients do not pay any upfront or out-of-pocket costs related to their claim, and we will only collect legal fees after we successfully recover compensation for a client’s losses.
Filing Deadlines and Your Claim
If you have a personal injury, workers’ compensation, or employment law claim in Los Angeles, it is crucial for you to speak to an attorney as soon as possible to make sure that your case is filed on time. Each of these types of claims has specific deadlines for filing, called the statute of limitations. A skilled attorney will understand these deadlines and make sure that your case is filed on time so that you can recover the compensation you are entitled to.
