Helping Employees With Wrongful Termination Claims
In California, employers can terminate your employment at will. This means that, unless you have a written employment contract, you can be fired at any time and for any reason. However, you may have a claim for wrongful termination if your employer takes adverse action against you when you have suffered employment discrimination or retaliation.
At Donald R. Holben & Associates, APC, our lawyers represent California employees in the private, public and government sectors who have been wrongfully terminated. Our extensive experience includes situations involving:
- Employees who report acts of discrimination in the workplace
- Employees who have been victims of sexual harassment
- Employees who report on illegal activity or procedures by employers
- Employees exercising their right to engage in lawful and protected activity
Based in Southern California, our attorneys possess sophisticated knowledge of the administrative remedies that must be exhausted before you can pursue a wrongful termination lawsuit. We have extensive experience handling wrongful termination lawsuits in both state and federal court. We will evaluate your situation thoroughly to determine which laws (state or federal) provide the most benefit based on your situation.
If you pursue administrative remedies for employment discrimination or file complaints with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or other regulatory agencies, and your employer fires you, you may have the right to file an action for retaliation. Employers are not allowed to retaliate against you for exercising your rights under the law.
