It had no due sciplinary history ,as never late ,never missed a day I was terminated solely solely because I reported discrimination,harassment ,injury .Does being fired by co employer allow me to file a 132A
Your allegations likely allow you to file for violation of the Fair Employment and Housing Act. If you have that claim available, a 132a claim pales in comparison. It would be prudent for you to locate and consult with an experienced employment law attorney as soon as possible to explore your facts and determine your options. I would suggest you look either on this site in the Find a Lawyer section, or go to www.cela.org, the home page for the California Employment Lawyers Association, an organization whose members are dedicated to the representation of employees against their employers.
Most employment attorneys who practice this area of law work offer a free or low cost consultation in the beginning and then, if the matter has merit and value, will usually agree to work on a contingency basis, meaning you can hire an attorney without paying any money until the matter results in a positive outcome for you. Many advance all the costs of the litigation as well. Do not let fear of fees and costs keep you from finding a good attorney.
Good luck to you.

You need to talk to a separate (new) attorney concerning your wrongful termination claim. (You can still keep your current Workers Compensation attorney at the same time).
What you described is a violation of California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). These kinds of cases are usually easy to prove and you should not have a problem getting an attorney to take the case on contingency.
