Skilled Representation For Wrongful Termination

California is an "at-will" employment state, which means that employers can fire an employee without needing a good cause. Even with this lack of protection, federal and state law prevents employers from terminating workers for illegal reasons.

What Qualifies As Wrongful Termination?

To file a wrongful termination claim, your employer must have broken the law when firing you. These cases can be extremely difficult to prove in court and require an experienced litigator who will guide you through the process. Our employment law attorneys can investigate the details of your termination and manage every detail of your case.

Many employer actions may qualify for a wrongful termination claim, including:

  • Firing a worker because of their membership as part of a protected class, such as race, age, gender, religion, ethnic background or disability status
  • Breaching an employee's employment contract upon firing, even if it was only a verbal promise
  • Firing an employee as retaliation for informing management of harassment or because of blowing the whistle on illegal activities
  • Discharging someone because he or she took part in protected activities, such as sitting on a jury, serving in the military or taking medical leave

Even if your employer terminates you, you are still entitled to your final wages for hours worked. If your former employer withholds your pay, we can protect your rights and represent your best interests.
