Do you have to file a lawsuit to subpoena documents: I'm trying to get the documents from my ex employer regarding my termination.

Azad’s answer: As mentioned above, you have a right to inspect and obtain copies of your personnel file and documents relating to your current and former employment. This web page of the the California Department of Industrial Relations website provides good information on what you are entitled to and how you can obtain it: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/faq_righttoinspectpe.... Ultimately, if you believe you were wrongfully terminated or were otherwise subjected to illegal employment practices by your former employer, you should consult with an employment attorney as soon as possible. You can use the "Find a Lawyer" link at the top of the Avvo.com page. The California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA) is also a great resource. See www.CELA.org where you can search by specific practice areas and counties.

Do I have a discrimination claim?: I'm a type 1 diabetic Deputy Sheriff (4yrs) specifically in custody. Have been placed on light duty status based on pre placement agreement from the academy. County medical says IWas not monitoring my diabetes to their standards based on previous "agreement ". That was 2 years ago; was then asked to sign new contract as a terms to my returning to full duty, however I declined due to disagreement with contract. Last October was officially placed on permanent restrictions indefinitely and offered a voluntary demotion. I refused as well. Representative advised to not press issue because I don't have a strong case unless they force a demotion. I haven't heard any news for a while and I'm getting frustrated. What should I do? Do I really have to wait to be demoted before I do anything?

You will need to provide extensive facts, including documentation and the "agreements" you mention, in order to get proper advisement.
