Unfair Workplace Conditions | San Diego Connect Interview
As a work environment lawyer, Lawyers for Justice, PC’s co-founder, Edwin Aiwazian, was thrilled to chat with San Diego Connect about unfair workplace conditions for people returning to the office after – and during – the pandemic as new variants of COVID continue to be discovered.
In the past two weeks there have been over 770,000 reported cases of COVID-19 in Los Angeles County alone. Employees who are returning to work deserve to return in a work environment that is safe. If they do not feel safe returning to work, but are being forced to by their employers, it is a good idea to consult a work environment lawyer.
The attorneys at Lawyers for Justice, PC advocate and fight for employees who have been taken advantage of in the workplace. There is no excuse – not even in the face of a pandemic – that employees should be threatened at work. With over 25 work environment lawyers on the LFJ roster, the firm’s aim is to ensure that irresponsible employers are held accountable and to the highest of standards – especially as the COVID-19 pandemic rages on.
During the conversation with San Diego Connect’s Alex Steiniger, Edwin Aiwazian showcased his expertise in the field of employment law. He explained that there is no excuse that an employee should be pushed beyond their limits or comfort zone in the workplace.
He also explained that if an employee with a pre-existing condition spends time in a workplace that worsens that condition, they are eligible to file a worker’s compensation claim. Edwin further explained why employees should document conversations with their employers on work stressors so that in the event of a lawsuit, there is a paper trail.
