Every worker deserves to be treated fairly by their employer. It should be the last thing any employee should have to worry about. Unfortunately, there are far too many companies, corporations and private businesses that take advantage of their employees. Many are forced to deal with discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace. If they speak out, they may be forced to accept a demotion or a wrongful termination. Fortunately, there are laws on the books that are designed to protect workers from illegal and unethical business practices. My name is Matthew A. Kaufman and I am a Westlake Village wrongful termination attorney. For more than two decade the legal team at The Kaufman Law Firm has successfully represented countless men and women and helped them recover the compensation they deserved.
