California Wrongful Termination Lawyer
California employment law has carved out certain exceptions to the at-will employment law policy. Employers cannot terminate an employee on the basis of a number of discrimination and harassment reasons. If the employer engages in wrongful discharge, the employer can be held responsible for employment law violations.
Los Angeles Wrongful Discharge Is Illegal
While employment in the United States is usually "at will," meaning an employer can fire an employee at any time, the employer is not able to fire because of the following:
- Sexual orientation
- Reporting a sexual harassment claim
- Family and Medical Leave Act absences
- Support for a sexual harassment, discrimination or whistleblower claim
Many employees have difficulty understanding whether their employer engaged in wrongful discharge. It can be tricky for an employee to know for certain whether the employer relied on an illegal reason as cause for termination.
Our employment law attorneys have extensive experience investigating employees' allegations of wrongful termination. We know how to collect important evidence that can help to bolster a claim of wrongful discharge.
