What Is Wrongful Termination?

You may be asking yourself, “what is wrongful termination?”

Wrongful termination is, unfortunately, something many workers experience at some point in their career, and the wrongful termination lawyers at Lawyers for Justice, PC has a strong track record of helping. We have assisted thousands of California workers in fighting against unlawful treatment and conduct from their employers, and we have recovered significant compensation for clients in the process.

Understanding wrongful termination can be tricky. What is wrongful termination? How can you tell if you have been wrongfully terminated from your job? Although California is an at-will employment state, there are still ways to indicate if there has been wrongful termination. You may have been wrongfully fired from your job if you have experienced the following:

– You were terminated for discriminatory reasons based upon your race, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, veteran status, pregnancy, disability, or other characteristics or traits that are protected by law. For example, maybe you were fired because you feel your employer was prejudiced against you because of the color of your skin. That would be a violation of your legal rights. If that is the case, you should call a wrongful termination lawyer immediately.

– You were fired for reporting an employer for unlawful practices or were forced to resign because of unfair workplace activity. For example, maybe you observed your employee engaging in illegal workplace behavior and you dutifully reported it. If you were fired shortly thereafter, your employer may have terminated you for reporting him. In that case, you should contact a wrongful termination lawyer like the ones at Lawyers for Justice, PC.

– You were terminated in breach of an employment contract. Perhaps you had a contract for your job’s duration, but your employer broke the contract to fire you. That is a breach of an employment contract and involving a wrongful termination lawyer could help you reclaim compensation.
