Employees in California might think that there isn’t anything they can do if they are terminated for a job since this is an at-will employment state. This isn’t the truth in all cases. There are limits to the reasons why employers can terminate people. If an employee is fired for an illegal reason, that person might choose to take legal action against the employer.
We understand that you might have some questions about wrongful termination. We can discuss your case with you and help you find out what options you have. One thing that you must remember is that you can only take action if you were terminated for something like speaking about about discrimination or harassment, or if you made statements about illegal activities going on in the business.
It can sometimes be a challenge to prove wrongful termination; however, it isn’t impossible. We can review your employment record to determine what points in it we might be able to use. If you don’t have any negative marks on that and you recently filed a complaint about something or cooperated with an investigation against the company, we might be able to set up a timeline that shows you were wrongfully terminated.
Be careful how you react when you are terminated. It is easy to get angry, but this might be detrimental. Instead, plan your responses carefully and don’t say anything that the company might be able to use against you if your case ends up in court. We can help you navigate through the necessary steps after you are let go.
