Why was John Chung Law created?

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation investigates thousands of allegations of misconduct against its employees every year. More than 70% of these allegations result in discipline including salary reductions, demotions, and even dismissal. Hiring a private attorney to appeal a disciplinary action to the State Personnel Board can cost upwards of $15,000 – $20,000 per case.

Nobody ever thinks they will be accused of misconduct.
Nobody ever thinks they will be the victim of a crime.
Nobody ever thinks they have to worry about getting into a car accident because they are a cautious driver.

The reality is that sometimes things are out of your control. Sometimes you are sitting perfectly still at a red light or driving the speed limit in your lane of traffic, when someone else’s action or inaction impacts your life. Your CDCR career is no different. In fact, you need even more protection because all it takes is a single accusation by anybody against you to get the disciplinary process started.

Created to give CDCR employees a fighting chance

John Chung Law was created to give employees of the CDCR an opportunity to obtain the best legal representation at a price that is affordable to public sector servants.

For around $1 a day, a member of John Chung Law can have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that they have the highest level of professional employment protection available and that they will never have to pay another penny in legal fees when their job is on the line.

John Chung Law has partnered with the Law Offices of John Chung to provide members with legal representation from an attorney who has more than 4 years of experience as an oversight monitor with the Office of the Inspector General’s Bureau of Independent Review (BIR). As a former BIR attorney, Mr. Chung has expertise in every facet of the CDCR disciplinary process and is capable of applying his many years of experience as a State and Federal prosecutor to ensure that you have the best representation throughout the process.

John Chung Law’s Member Benefits are available to all CDCR employees of all classifications and registering only takes a few minutes. Review the Program Details and sign up today.
