California employment law can be complicated and involves statutes, case law, federal regulations, and constitutional rights. My firm has handled cases in state and federal courts against corporations, school districts, government agencies, hospitals, and other entities. I will initiate an immediate investigation, identify legal issues in your case, and aggressively pursue your rights involving employment contracts, sexual discrimination, harassment, wage and hour disputes, FMLA and wrongful termination.
What is Wrongful Termination?
When a person is fired from their job for reasons that are illegal, their employer has engaged in wrongful termination. Not all cases of job dismissal are matters of wrongful termination, however, especially in states or companies where the employment is “at-will.”
Wrongful termination occurs when someone’s dismissal is related to race, gender, ethnic background, religion, or disability. It also includes instances where termination is a breach of contract between the employer and employee.
If you’ve been fired and feel as though you’ve been wrongfully terminated, it’s important not to lash out or act on any negative instincts. Instead, contact me. We can look at your employment contract. In addition, inquire about the reasons for your firing and request to see your personnel file. In addition, be sure to collect important information about your termination in writing. This can be helpful later.
