Los Angeles Wrongful Termination Lawyers
Wrongfully Terminated by Your Employer? We Can Help
Losing your job can be an upsetting and traumatic experience. What is even more upsetting is when your termination from your employment was wrongful and illegal. Employers have a right to make personnel changes for business purposes. However, they do not have the right to wrongfully terminate an employee for inappropriate or illegal reasons. Speak to an experienced Los Angeles employment lawyer after mistreatment by your employer. He or she will accurately assess the validity of your case. At Yadegar, Minoofar & Soleymani LLP (YMS), our Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyers will personally review the information surrounding your termination.
Retaliatory Termination in California
Similarly, potential protections under whistleblower laws can include reporting a superior, reporting sexual harassment, reporting illegal conduct, and reporting unsafe working conditions. In addition, employees cannot be terminated simply because they have filed a workers’ compensation claim against their employer. You should file for lost wages and punitive damages after a retaliatory firing.
Termination Due to Discrimination
While retaliatory discrimination is illegal, termination as the result of discrimination is also illegal. The law protects certain classes from discrimination. To fire an employee because they are a member of a protected class is a discriminatory termination. Protected classes include religion, race, ethnicity, gender, and national origin. Employers also cannot terminate employees based on pregnancy, disability, or age. Retain the services of an experienced attorney after a termination due to discrimination. These cases are complex. Any evidence of the true reason for your termination will erode over time. If you act quickly, you can hold your employer responsible for wrongfully termination.
