Were You Terminated For An Illegal Reason?

The loss of a job is never easy. Understanding exactly what your legal rights are following a termination can be essential to your making an informed choice regarding whether or not to pursue action against your former employer. We have extensive experience assisting executives, managers and other employees after a potentially wrongful termination.

Unless you have an employment contract, your employment is considered to be "at will" and can be terminated at any time for any reason that is not illegal. There are a number of reasons for terminating someone's employment that are not legal. If your termination occurred as a result of one of those illegal reasons, we can help you take action against your former employer.

An employer in California may not terminate an employee due to:

  • Gender
  • Race
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy
  • Sexual orientation
  • National origin
  • Retaliation for whistleblowing and other reasons

Uncovering The Real Reason Behind A Termination

We know the exact types of evidence that will be necessary to craft a highly effective wrongful discharge case against your former employer. Often, employers will give some legal reason for an unlawful firing that is not the actual reason for the termination. This is referred to as pretext and it is meant to hide the illegality of their actions. Our experience allows us to see through any pretext and build a case that can prove to a jury that you have were terminated for illegal reasons.
