My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California
I was laid off recently last minute (on a Friday without notice). I have personal belongings at my former place of work. I called my registry and asked how do I get them. Two days later, they inform me that I need to work it out with my former supervisor, whom retaliated against me because I filed paperwork on him about issues while working.
He said that he was going to mail me my belongings. Then a former co-worker of mine said she will try to get them for me and meet up with me later.
The belongings I have there is a professional license that I need in order to start my new job, other small things like food and utensils and some paperwork including some stuff that I filed on him. I do not trust that he will send me everything and some papework will end up missing.
Is there any law about personal belongings? I mean it would really be easier for me to go there, be escorted and get my stuff myself instead of him trying to figure out what is mine.
