The entertainment industry can be a rough environment for employees. The stress usually associated with a position in the industry, coupled with the difficulty of breaking into it, is a burden for many in Southern California. While most employment in the entertainment industry is at will, meaning the employer can terminate without cause, there are exceptions to the at-will employment rule.
If you are a member of a protected class and your employer fires you, you have rights. At Bononi Law Group, LLP, our attorneys have helped hundreds of clients file suit against their employers for wrongful termination. Our experienced Pasadena wrongful termination lawyers can help you, even if you need to take on the powerful entertainment industry.
Discrimination In The Entertainment Industry
Employers cannot fire an employee in the entertainment industry for the following reasons:
- Sexual orientation
Wrongful retaliation is also common in the entertainment industry. Retaliation in the workplace occurs when an employer fires or demotes you or denies you a promotion for reporting an illegal action such as discrimination, harassment or a wage and hour violation. Entertainment employers are not allowed to fire you just because you reported or supported someone else's report of an illegal employment law practice.
