Labor Code section 132a and Serious

& Willful Misconduct Event title

With recent changes in workers’ compensation laws and with the decrease in permanent disability benefits, we expect a significant increase in petitions alleging violations of Labor Code section 132a as well as petitions alleging serious & willful misconduct. Return-to-work issues are also a bigger potential minefield than ever before. With the increase of FEHA litigation, these claims are complex to defend. It is imperative that employers have an attorney who is experienced with these
overlapping issues in order to defend their interests.
