California Labor Dept Org Chart

Ever wonder where all the various California labor agencies fit in? I’m talking about the Department of Industrial Relations, the Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, the Labor and Workforce Development Agency, the Labor Commissioner, CAL/OSHA, and on and on. No? Well, you just might if you ever need to bring an employment or labor law lawsuit. And whoever you retain as your lawyer had better.

Without further ado, I present the organizational chart for the California labor department, otherwise known as the Department of Industrial Relations. And what a hard-working bunch they are.

    Well done getting it in a single paper. However it would have been easier to edit it off time to time when a new recruitment is done or somebody leaves if it was hosted in a web based org chart solution like Creately .

    That question is nearly impossible to answer because the answer depends on so much more information. California is an at-will state, meaning, employers can fire or demote employees whenever, however they wish, for whatever reason they wish AS LONG AS IT’S NOT AN ILLEGAL REASON. Illegal reasons include: discrimination (disability, racial, sex orientation, marital, etc.), during a protected CFRA or FMLA medical leave, retaliation (for whistleblowing, taking medical leave, etc.), and on and on. If facts establish an illegal reason for the termination, you may have a claim. Speak to an attorney right away.

    Can an employer hire someone to take your place before
    given notice of termination?
