Have you been wrongfully terminated from your job?
Being let go from a job is always difficult, impacting every part of a person’s life from the financial to the professional to the emotional. But employees discharged for unlawful reasons can take action in their defense. If you believe you were wrongfully terminated from your job, you need an aggressive and experienced legal team to fight for the justice you deserve. Some common situations leading to wrongful termination cases include:
- Retaliation for complaining about illegal conduct (whistleblower).
- Termination due to a protected category, such as age, disability, gender, pregnancy, race, religion, sexual orientation, or other unlawful criteria.
- Retaliation for suffering a workplace injury or filing a workers’ compensation claim.
- Retaliation for needing to take a medical leave or asking for a reasonable accommodation.
Since California is an at-will employment state, wrongful termination claims are hard to prove and typically require experienced legal representation. In many cases, employers fabricate a pretext for discharging a worker to justify their real (unlawful) reason. In these cases, a successful lawsuit hinges on thorough legal analysis and a sophisticated strategy. Our extensive knowledge of California wrongful termination law, and our vast experience representing both employees and employers in employment law gives us a unique advantage in quickly analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of your claim and developing the right approach.
