Wrongful Termination

In California, employers can lawfully fire their employees for many reasons, many of which don't seem fair. However, employers cannot fire employees based on certain protected characteristics, including age, gender, pregnancy, race, religion and disability, and for exercising their right to take protected leave. Such a firing constitutes a wrongful termination.

If you have lost your job and you believe it may have been a wrongful termination, the lawyers at California Employment Counsel, APC, are here to help you explore your legal options.

How A Lawyer Can Help

There are many ways an employer can execute a wrongful termination, and not all of them are obvious. Our firm is devoted to employment law, so we are able to see even the most well-hidden motives. Your employer may:

  • Make it extremely unattractive for you to stay at your job, forcing you to quit
  • Lay you off so they have plausible deniability
  • Outright fire you, claiming it is for a legal reason

No matter what your employer does, our attorneys are seasoned courtroom advocates who know how to operate from a position of strength. We seek favorable settlements out of court when possible, but are always prepared to represent our clients in court when necessary.

Every case is unique, but in many cases we are able to pursue damages for our wrongfully terminated clients. Damages may include past lost wages, future lost wages and emotional distress.
