Battling Cancer -- And Losing Your Job

Fighting cancer can consume every bit of your energy. A cancer diagnosis affects your family and your friends, and it can impact your career.

In the state of California, it is illegal for your employer to discriminate against you on the basis of a medical condition like cancer or on the basis of the fact that you took medical leave to get treatment for the illness. In many situations, a wrongful termination case means an employer did wrong legally and ethically. The legal part calls for the advice of an experienced employment law attorney.

California Employment Counsel, APC, is highly experienced in cases involving employees who were mistreated by their employers, even while they were battling cancer. As your law firm, we can help you by:

  • Reviewing your case and explaining your options for moving forward
  • Advising you on how to protect your family, health, career and financial interests
  • Assertively negotiating with or aggressively litigating against your employer
  • Working methodically toward the best possible case result
