Being dismissed from your job is never a pleasant experience. However, as many workers in California know, it can happen all too easily, particularly if you get on the wrong side of your employer. There are several reasons that you could be dismissed and not all of them are legal. However, it is not always easy to immediately prove that your dismissal was unfair. As such, it is important to know what to do in the meantime.
Although you may be keen to retaliate against your employer for such unfairness, some caution that this should be avoided as it could count against you. As this article on wrongful termination explains, it may be best to simply ignore negative instincts toward your employer. An alternative option may be to collect information about the circumstances of your dismissal and look out for any inconsistencies between your contract and the sequences of events you have experienced.
A wrongful termination lawyer may be able to offer valuable advice, both about your situation and about state laws surrounding unfair dismissal. Hearing his or her opinion before making any major decisions might be beneficial. He or she might also assist you in pursuing the compensation you deserve and working toward having your position reinstated, if that is desired and is a possibility.
Your job is more than just a source of income. It is a major part of your lifestyle.
