Practice Tips It is prudent for applicants' attorneys to warn clients that the injuries they want to claim (in particular psychiatric or nervous system claims) can be discovered by perspective employers and others. The editor provides the following writing to potential clients:

"Please acknowledge that I have informed you that while the documents establishing a psychiatric claim cannot be obtained by your employer or potential employers, an employer or potential employer may find out that you have filed such a claim. While employers are forbidden by California law to consider workers’ compensation claims when deciding whether or not to hire you, you should be aware that they might use this information in an unlawful way to deny you employment.

In deciding whether you want to bring a psychiatric claim, you should consider the benefits in terms of treatment and other forms of compensation that you might obtain from filing such a claim, and weigh that against the potential risk of being unlawfully denied employment.

If you wish me to proceed with the psychiatric claim, please indicate that in your own words (such as “Please file a psychiatric claim on my behalf”). If you have decided against bringing a psychiatric claim, please say, “I have decided not to bring a psychiatric claim."

Please feel free to ask questions or discuss this further with me."
