Fired illegally during a company reorganization?


Job loss through a layoff or company reorganization is a difficult thing to go through. But it is something many companies have to do - and something that many employees will have to go through.

Unfortunately, some businesses take the opportunity to dismiss certain employees during a company reorganization. This is often done for discriminatory reasons, where certain groups of employees are targeted:

  • Employees of a certain religion
  • Employees of a certain ethnic group
  • Employees of a certain age
  • Employees of a certain gender

Some California companies are using a company reorganization or reduction in force as an opportunity to fire women.

Imagine this scenario: A female employee rises to a high position within a company. Then, under the guise of a corporate restructuring, the business brings on male counterparts and the female employee is out of a job.It is worth noting that an employer can fire an employee for pretty much any reason - except if that reason is for discriminatory or retaliatory purposes.

Firing female employees because of their gender is illegal. When this happens, the employer can be held responsible and the victim has legal options. The victim may be eligible for compensation.

It is advisable to speak to an employment law attorney if this has happened to you. You can call Bononi Law Group, LLP, at 866-295-7512 for a free consultation.
