Wrongful Termination

Was your termination wrongful?

A termination is wrongful when an employee is fired for an unlawful or impermissible reason. Even in an at-will employment state like California, you might still have a wrongful termination claim if you were fired for any of the following reasons:

  • Gender (including pregnancy)
  • Disability 
  • Age
  • Race or national origin
  • Religion or religious practices
  • Marital status
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity or gender expression
  • Military or veteran status
  • Use of family or medical leave 
  • Retaliation for complaining about illegal or unsafe practices
  • Retaliation for raising concerns about discrimination
  • Retaliation for complaining about unpaid wages, overtime, or other Labor Code violations, such as failure to provide meal or rest breaks
  • Retaliation against health care workers for reporting patient safety concerns

Terminating an employee for a discriminatory or retaliatory reason is unlawful. If you think you were wrongfully terminated or are being forced out on account of one of the above unlawful reasons, you can count on us.
