WRONGFUL TERMINATION LAWYER IN CALIFORNIA
Under California labor code, employers in the state hire an employee ‘at will.’ In layman’s terms, ‘at will’ means that either the employee or employer may end the working relationship at any time without facing any legal repercussions.
So exactly what is wrongful termination and why do you need an attorney in the event it happens to you?
Wrongful termination occurs when an employer is terminated from their job due to a protected class. For example, a person who is fired due to their race or sexually orientation has been wrongfully terminated and should seek the legal expertise offered by a lawyer at this time.
Individuals terminated from their job due to inclusion in a protected class is illegal in the state of California. Individuals wrongfully terminated may be entitled to compensation, but it’s not as simple as requesting money and you should never expect an employer to admit wrongdoing.
A successful lawsuit requires proof that termination occurred as the result of the person being a part of a protected class. Our law firm represents individuals who’ve experienced wrongful termination. Schedule a no-cost, risk-free consultation to learn how our team of legal experts can help get justice where it is due.
