In the state of California, it’s unlawful for an employer to discriminate against an employee due to age, race, gender, national origin, religion or sexual preference. The most obvious form of wrongful termination is often based on race, gender or sexual preference. If you feel you have been terminated for any of these reasons, you may have a claim for wrongful termination.
If you were terminated after bringing a discrimination or harassment case against your employer, or you were terminated after reporting an illegal practice at work, you could also have a case for wrongful termination. It is unlawful for an employer to terminate an employee for filing a claim against them, and whistleblowers (go to whistleblower page) are protected from retaliation.
In any of these cases, one of our experienced attorneys can advise you of your rights.
