What our Orange County wrongful termination attorneys do

You probably know that California is an “at-will” employment state. This means that workers in this state can generally be terminated for any reason or no reason at all. However, that does not mean employers can break state and federal law by firing someone.

Illegal firing of an employee generally occurs when the termination involves:

  • Discrimination based on a person’s race, nationality, gender, pregnancy status, disability, sexuality, religion, or age.
  • Retaliation against an employee exercising their rights, including the right to divulge an employer’s illegal or fraudulent actions or refusing to participate in those actions.

Wrongful termination based because of discrimination

When a person is terminated, a company is never going to say they are doing so because they are discriminating against a person. They will often find other benign reasons to do so to make the termination seem legitimate.

When we look at the numbers from the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, we see that they brought over 76,000 charges against employers in the latest reporting year.

  • There were more than 24,000 charges for each of the following types of discrimination:
    • Race
    • Sex
    • Disability

Wrongful termination based on retaliation

Retaliation in the workplace takes many forms. We know that the EEOC brought nearly 40,000 charges against employers during the latest reporting year based on retaliation against workers. Retaliation often happens when workers:

  • Complain about workplace safety conditions
  • Complain about wage fairness
  • Report harassment or discrimination in the workplace
  • Request their legal disability accommodations
  • Take their allowable medical leave
  • Refuse to participate in illegal or fraudulent activities
  • Report an employer’s illegal or fraudulent activities (whistleblower)

Your OC wrongful termination lawyers will scour employee handbooks, contracts, and company policies to determine whether or not you have been fired illegally.
