At the Bononi Law Group, LLP, we represent Los Angeles employees who have been the victims of wrongful termination. We take pride in knowing that we have helped numerous individuals — who are stellar employees and hard workers — climb out of extremely difficult situation after losing their jobs due to no fault of their own.
In legal terms, when someone is wrongfully terminated, it means that he or she was laid off or fired due to unlawful reasons. These reasons could include:
— Termination that violates state and/or federal anti-discrimination statutes;
— Termination in connection with sexual harassment;
— Termination that violates written or oral employee-employer agreements;
— Termination that violates labor laws, like collective bargaining statutes;
— Termination as a form of retaliation after the employee made a legal claim or complaint regarding the employer.
At the Bononi Law Group, LLP, we always look for the above kinds of scenarios when we review a potential new wrongful termination lawsuit on behalf of a client. However, other types of factual scenarios could also warrant a wrongful termination suit depending on the situation.
Once we identify the legal violation, we will then look to determine the terminated employee’s financial damages which could relate to lost wages, lost opportunity, emotional pain and suffering, court costs, interest, attorneys’ fees, punitive damages and other kinds of relief. If you or your family member suspect that you have been wrongfully terminated, you may want to discuss your situation with an experienced employment law attorney to determine what kinds of damages could be pursuable in your situation.
