Is it possible the California DLSE Office's is in Error

Asked almost 2 years ago - Los Angeles, CA

I filed a retaliation complaint with the California DLSE office claiming I was fired by my employer for other reason's (pretex) than what they state. I believe those reason were illegal under California law. I was able to present overwhelming evidence with a list of over 15 witnesses. My work history evaluation were better than average every that I was employed. I lost the case. The DLSE office sent my notice during Christmas week, which I was received on the last possible day to appeal (Friday). I called the office and no one was there to take my call other than the receptionist. Everyone left for the holiday weekend at 1pm. I left a message on the chief deputy commissioner voice mail stating "I appeal". I sent an appeal letter the next. Appeal denied! What can I do now

    You may still have the right to bring an action in civil court. You should speak to an attorney who can help you navigate the waters.
