The Truth About Wrongful Termination
People rarely believe they are rightfully terminated, and unfair treatment does not necessarily equate into unlawful treatment, or a valid legal claim. That is why it is critical that you consult an attorney as soon as possible if you think you have a wrongful termination or other employment law claim. Contact one of our experienced employment law attorneys for a free initial consultation.
Under California law, a wrongful termination or discharge case usually falls under one of the following categories:
- Violation of employment contract
- Discrimination cases
- Whistleblower/public policy cases
Wrongful discharge cases take many different forms. A hostile work environment is one in which there is discrimination or unfair treatment against a class of employees based upon their race, age, gender, religion or national origin. Consult our employment discrimination lawyer to talk about your rights and your options.
A whistleblower may face workplace retaliation for complaining of illegal conduct on the part of the employer. Sometimes the employee has been asked to violate the law. In such cases, we work to obtain damages on behalf of our whistleblower clients.
You can be the victim of retaliatory discharge if you were fired for making a claim of sexual harassment or discrimination of any kind. You can have a successful claim for retaliation even if the underlying claim of discrimination is not successful.
If you believe you were the victim of wrongful termination, we can review the circumstances of your situation and help you determine whether you have a valid claim. Contact Zeldes Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, in San Diego, California. To arrange a free consultation, call 619-342-8000.
