How to deal with a wrongful termination in California

On Behalf of | Mar 22, 2022 | Wrongful Termination

If you live in California and believe you were wrongfully terminated from your job, you have rights. Many people are harmed financially, emotionally, and more by wrongful terminations. Documenting as much information, including dates, times, and names, will help prove your allegation.

Failing business, poor performance assessments, or non-compliance are legitimate reasons for termination, but causes such as discrimination or harassment are against the law.

If you have performed work according to the job description, received positive employment reviews, and was terminated unjustly, you potentially have a wrongful termination claim. If you were released “for cause,” it doesn’t wholly negate your claim.

For instance, if your performance suffered because of undue stress from the harassment. That’s why noting each occurrence, documenting whom you notified, and what the results were, if any, are essential elements to support your case.

Dealing with a wrongful termination.

Getting fired is challenging in any circumstance, especially if it’s not your fault. It might seem that your employer has the power, and you don’t, but there are winning strategies to support your claim.

Most states have an “at-will” clause, and employers will try to use it to justify a firing. Taking another job to help with bills and responsibilities doesn’t mean the previous termination didn’t harm you.

Examples of unlawful termination

The following is a brief list of wrongful terminations that justify a claim for legal remedy:

  • Discrimination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Labor Law Violations
  • Whistle Blower Retaliation
  • Contract Violation

Wrongful terminations are challenging. You should know the laws in your state for filing a claim. You don’t want to miss any critical filing deadlines that could void your claim.
