Protecting employees' rights after a wrongful termination

People work in many different types of jobs here in California. Most of these people are considered at-will employees, meaning that the employees can quit at any time and employers can fire employees for many different reasons at any point in time. However, this does not mean employers can fire employees for any reason.

There are certain illegal reasons for employers to fire their employees.

These reasons include, but are not limited to, age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion and others. Employers also cannot fire employees in retaliation for the employee reporting the company's legal violations or participating in an investigation.

If the employer does fire an employee for one of these reasons, then the employee could have a wrongful termination case against the employer and potentially be entitled to compensation as a result.

There are also various forms of compensation that the employee could be entitled to as well. They could receive back pay, compensation for pain and suffering, punitive damages, money for attorney's fees and other costs associated with the lawsuit. They could also be reinstated to their former position or back to their seniority level and receive lost benefits as well.

Many people lose their jobs each year in California, and, sometimes, the job loss is illegal. If the termination is based on discrimination or in retaliation, the employee could have a claim against the company. These can be very complicated cases though because proving a employer's true intentions behind firing someone can be difficult.

At our firm, we have handled many of these cases and understand the facts that demonstrate potential discrimination. For more information on how we handle these cases please visit our wrongful termination page on our website.
