What is wrongful termination?

The terms “wrongful termination” and “wrongful discharge” under Federal and California law is when an employer fires or discharges an employee for illegal reasons. There isn’t just one single law governing a wrongful termination, there are many. It may involve a termination without good cause or reason and/or violations of “public policy laws”. It may also include demotions, failure to hire or rehire, and a lay off. When your employer cuts your hours, or makes things so difficult for you that you have no choice but to quit – this, too, may be illegal.

For example a wrongful termination occurs when a person is fired in violation of anti-discrimination laws such as on the basis of gender, ethnicity, pregnancy, disability, religion, sexual harassment or medical condition. It occurs when a person is fired for bringing to her superiors’ attention or reporting to authorities the employer’s illegal act or refusing to commit illegal acts for the employer. It frequently occurs in violation of OSHA workplace safety regulations and other Labor Laws. Yet, every single day, people are fired, denied positions, passed over for promotions and otherwise penalized illegally.

We Work to Uncover the Real Facts

There are thousands of possible reasons causing a wrongful termination. The employer’s true motive is a determining factor in deciding if it was illegal or wrongful in the eyes of the law. As your California wrongful termination lawyers, we will look beyond what your employer claimed was the reason for termination and investigate the true motives.

Our allegiance is to employees who have been wrongfully treated by their employers whether corporations, government or private enterprises. Our job is to get the truth out about what happened to you. To reveal to everyone necessary the real reasons exactly why you have been harmed.

Face the problem head on or suffer in silence.

We do this because we know how important your work is to you; that you rely on your employment career to provide financially for you and your family, as well as for peace of mind. You must protect your home, your savings, and your retirement. Everyone must buy medicine and food plus pay rent and taxes. We know in life sometimes we have to face bad things head on. In the case of wrongful termination the law requires it. The alternative is to “suffer in silence”.

Being terminated from a job for most workers results in an unimaginable amount of stress, anxiety and depression. Finding another job is many times a lost cause because when they tell prospective employers why they were terminated they are blacklisted by all future jobs of any worth. Workers can never be certain they will find another similar job and soon learn that even if they do find another job, that job will not pay the same, offer the same benefits or even be in their chosen career. They will have to start all over again – at the bottom. The effects of a wrongful termination can reach beyond financial problems, as the stress involved in being out of work can put a significant strain on every aspect of a workers life, especially their family.

We recommend where possible to hold the employer responsible for putting you in harm’s way. It is not your responsibility as the victim to fix the mess you did not start. Employers control the work environment – as a matter of law. They have chosen sides against you. When you are harmed in the workplace, you can make the employer own up to their responsibility.
