    Default Laid Off and Personal Belongings

    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.

    You have no right to demand to be allowed on the premises without a court order. If the guy said he will mail the stuff, you need to give him the opportunity to do so. Then I would contact the police to see if they will assist. Depending on the situation and locale, they might be able and willing.


    as to your professional license; how about getting a copy from the issuer?

    it's a state prison... how does that work with the first part?
    my professional license will cost me extra to get a copy, and right now between losing my job and moving (coincidentally) to a bigger and more expensive place, i'm cash strapped.

    thanks for the reply!
