Were You Wrongfully Fired From Your Job In The Film And Entertainment Industry?
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.

Discrimination In The Entertainment Industry
Employers cannot fire an employee in the entertainment industry for any of the following reasons:
- Sexual orientation
- National origin
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.
