What Constitutes Wrongful Termination in California?

California is an “at-will” employment state. This means that there is no employment contract, and you can be let go for any reason at any time. However, there are certain situations where it is illegal to terminate an employee. Wrongful termination occurs when an employer unlawfully terminates an employee’s employment, typically due to discrimination, retaliation, or in violation of public policy.

Common Types of Wrongful Termination Cases We Handle

Our experienced wrongful termination lawyers are well-versed in handling a wide range of cases, including but not limited to:

Discrimination-Based Termination: If you believe you were terminated because of your race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or other protect characteristic, you may have a valid wrongful termination claim.

Retaliation Claims: Employees who face retaliation for reporting workplace violations, harassment, taking family or medical leave or illegal activities can pursue wrongful termination cases.

Violation of Public Policy: If you were terminated for reporting misconduct or illegal activities within your company, taking time off to vote or serve on a jury, or other good faither actions, you may be entitled to legal protection.

If you believe you have been the victim of an illegal firing, your wrongful termination attorney can help you understand your rights and options under the law and advise you of your best course of action. 

What to Do If You Have Been Wrongfully Terminated

If you want justice following an illegal firing, it is very important to act quickly. You need to immediately secure evidence for your case by:

  • Getting a copy of your complete employee personnel file.
  • Creating a record of important events such as hiring and firing, promotion and demotion, raises and pay cuts, discriminatory remarks or actions, performance reviews, and disciplinary actions.
  • Gathering any additional documentation related to your employment and termination.
  • Document all harassment and discrimination conduct including witnesses and dates.
  • All complaints to your employer should be in writing and submitted via fax, email, or certified letter.

Wrongful termination claims are subject to time restrictions, so you should contact a wrongful termination lawyer in Southern California right away to ensure any necessary complaints are filed within the statute of limitations.

What Compensation Can You Seek for a Wrongful Termination Case?

Victims of wrongful termination may be entitled to various forms of compensation, including:

  • Lost Wages due to wrongful termination.
  • Compensation for future income losses.
  • Damages for emotional pain, suffering, and anxiety.
  • Punitive Damages
  • Attorney’s fees and legal costs associated with your case.

In addition to compensation, a wrongful termination lawyer can also help you get reinstated in the job that you were fired from. Contact Perona, Langer, Beck and Harrison to discuss your case and we can help you determine the best path forward.
