Were you unfairly dismissed?
On behalf of The Kaufman Law Firm posted in Wrongful Termination on Friday, May 15, 2015.

Many employees in California have had the unpleasant experience of losing their job at one time or another. The problem is that you do not necessarily need to have done anything wrong for your employer to decide to dismiss you. It could even be as simple as them wanting to thin out their workforce.

However, there are certain reasons which your employer cannot legally use to fire you. If they do, or even if they claim a different reason but it appears that an illegal reason was the true cause, you may be able to claim compensation, or even be able to have your position reinstated. Some of the things for which you cannot be legally fired include the following:

  • If it breaches an employment agreement, either written or oral.
  • For discriminatory reasons.
  • In response to a claim or complaint.
  • When the dismissal is sexually motivated.

Of course, as this article on employment law explains, there are many other reasons an employer might use to dismiss you, but not all of them are legal. Knowing the rules in your home state is particularly important as this can affect the level of compensation or protection you might receive.

Nevertheless, it is always important to stand up to an unfair employer. It may seem like a daunting task, but with the advice and support of your wrongful termination lawyer, you can work toward securing justice for your mistreatment. You may even be awarded compensation or be able to be reinstated into your former position.
