Do You Need a Wrongful Termination Attorney?

Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired by an employer in violation of an employee’s legal rights. There are several types of wrongful termination including discrimination, contract violations, sexual harassment, and retaliation. For more information, read more on the following points and contact a wrongful termination lawyer today!

Is it Hard for a Lawyer to Prove Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful termination can sometimes be hard to prove, but getting the compensation you deserve is worth it. That is why it is so important to seek legal advice and guidance from an experienced employment and wrongful termination lawyer. Our team of wrongful termination lawyers in Los Angeles, CA utilizes an aggressive and comprehensive approach.

What Does California Employment Law Protect You Against?

A California Wrongful Termination Lawyer knows and understands the law surrounding your unlawful termination, or other protected workers right. Under California employment law, it is illegal for an employer to fire an employee or make any other employment decisions (such as being passed over for a promotion) for the following reasons:

  • Discriminatory reasons based on race, sex, or religion
  • Reasons that violate an employment contract
  • Reasons that are in revenge for an employee exercising certain legal rights

In short, these laws place important limits on an employer’s ability to terminate employees. An employee fired for reasons that violate these laws may be entitled to a wrongful termination claim for lost wages, benefits, and more. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated by your employer in California, contact Davtyan Law Firm today to discuss your case with a knowledgeable wrongful termination lawyer. Our Los Angeles based lawyers are experienced and equipped to handle your wrongful termination claim.

Wrongful Termination & Discrimination Claims in Los Angeles

Workplace discrimination and wrongful termination are huge problems in California. An experienced California wrongful termination lawyer will identify practices that are normalized in the workplace, but in reality are discriminatory. Although illegal, discrimination in the workplace happens often and many employees don’t know the extent of their rights. Fortunately, there are statutes in place that protect employees like you from wrongful termination and give those who are unjustly fired a way to get justice. Under California employment law, it is unlawful for an employer to fire an employee for discriminatory reasons or make any employment decision on the basis of one or more personality traits, known as “protected characteristics.”

What is Considered a Protected Characteristic Under California Law?

  • Race, color, national origin, or ancestry
  • Religion
  • Physical disability, mental disability, or other medical condition
  • Genetic information
  • Marital status
  • Sex, gender, gender identity or gender expression
  • Pregnancy or childbirth
  • Age (for employees over the age of 40)
  • Sexual orientation
  • Military or veteran status

If you believe you experienced an unfair dismissal because of your membership in one or more of these protected categories, you may have a wrongful termination claim against your employer. Consult one of the experienced Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyer at Davtyan Law Firm today to discuss your possible case.

Lawsuits that a Wrongful Termination Lawyer works with

Employment Contract Violations

Another type of wrongful termination in California involves termination in violation of employment contracts. If you were fired from your job in California, and you believe your termination was carried out in violation of your employment contract (which promised you job security or continued employment for a certain period of time or prohibited your employer from firing you without just cause) you may have a wrongful termination claim. Our wrongful termination lawyers have won many cases for our clients and we can help you too!

Retaliation Claims

Employers are also prohibited from firing an employee for exercising his or her employment rights. A professional wrongful termination lawyer is familiar with these rights that include taking time off for qualified medical or family reasons, filing a complaint of workplace harassment or discrimination, filing a workers’ compensation claim for a workplace injury, taking time off for jury duty, or filing a complaint of illegal wage and hour practices. If you believe you have been fired for illegal reasons such as discrimination or retaliation contact our experienced lawyers today to file a wrongful termination claim.

Violation of Public Policy Claims

According to employment law, employees may not be fired for refusing to commit an illegal act, exercising a legal right, or filing a complaint about being denied such a right. This is a less common, but still important type of wrongful termination and you may be entitled to compensation. When you are in need of a wrongful termination lawyer on your site, Davtyan Law is the firm for you!
