South Bay Wrongful Termination Lawyer
Work often provides us with more than financial resources — it can provide a sense of meaning and identity. This means it can be especially traumatic to be a victim of wrongful termination. Losing your job through no fault of your own can be a devastating challenge to overcome.
Fortunately, California state law and federal law both protect workers from acts of wrongful termination. If you’ve been the victim of such an act, you have the right to pursue justice in a court of law — and potentially be compensated for your losses.
The Facts About Wrongful Termination
In California, workers can be wrongfully terminated for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common include:
- Violating an implied contract
- Termination for whistleblowing activities
- Termination for exercising rights to employee leave or other mandated protections
- Termination for exercising rights provided under the Fair Employment and Housing Act
- Termination on the basis of one’s race, gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation or disability
These are some, but not all, of the scenarios under which a termination may be contested. Employment law, however, is complex and may involve state, local and federal programs and regulatory agencies. Because of this, it is often advisable to consult with an attorney before proceeding.
Should a court case prove successful, a victim of wrongful termination may be able to recoup lost wages, benefits, back pay and compensation for emotional distress or pain. Punitive damages may also be assessed in certain cases if willful wrongdoing is present and significant.
