WRONGFUL TERMINATION

We represent employees in wrongful termination claims. We also defend companies facing wrongful termination claims.

What is Wrongful Termination?

In short, it is a firing that violates California Public Policy. What is public policy? The California Constitution, Statutes, Regulations and Case law all contain California public policy. For example, there could be a wrongful termination if the Company fired you to avoid paying commissions. For example, there could be a wrongful termination based on Disability Discrimination, Harassment or other protected classes defined under FEHA.

Job Loss Can Be Difficult Even When Lawful

Any job loss is frequently painful for the affected individual and his or her family. A wrongful termination can have devastating ripple effects. Salary and role do not matter. The fears and feelings are real, and almost always the same. These are some of the reasons why we practice employment law.

Many employees mistakenly believe that they have no valid claims because California is an “at will” state. Similarly, many employers mistakenly believe that they are litigation proof because California is an “at will” state. The truth is not so clear cut. Talk with us.
