Former Moschino employee sues for wrongful termination

It has been a law for a long time that companies in California cannot discriminate against their employees, however, some companies still do it. This can come in many forms such as not hiring people, not promoting people, transferring people to less desirable positions or locations, firing certain employees and other actions based on the employee's race, age, gender, religion, disability or other protected classifications.

Recently a former employer of Moschino filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the company alleging she was fired based on a number of reasons which included both racial discrimination and gender discrimination. She said she was fired after complaining to management because employees referred to black customers as "Serena" and then would watch them since they did not appear outwardly to have money. She also claims that she also faced racial harassment and discrimination as well as gender discrimination.

This employee like others who are fired for discriminatory reasons may be able to receive compensation if they are successful. This compensation can be for different damages the employee endured as a result of the wrongful termination. It can pay for back pay, potentially future pay, emotional distress and other damages. This compensation can be very valuable for the employee as they move on, but it also can help hold the employer accountable for their treatment of the employee.

There are many reasons that people in California are fired each year. There are many valid and legal reasons that people can be fired. However, employers cannot be fired for discriminatory reasons. If they are they may be able to file a wrongful termination lawsuit and be compensated by the employer. These types of cases are not always straightforward cases though and consulting with an experienced attorney could be useful.
