If you believe that you were unfairly targeted for discriminatory firing or retaliatory discharge, contact us for a free consultation with a California employer retaliation attorney.
Fabricating Reasons For Your Dismissal
It is illegal under California statutes and federal laws to terminate an employee on the basis of age, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability or pregnancy. It is also considered wrongful termination to fire an employee for whistleblowing on fraud or illegal activity, reporting sexual harassment, claiming discrimination or filing a workers’ compensation claim.
Despite these legal protections, some employers will find or fabricate some pretext for firing the worker. For example, the employee may suddenly get a bad performance review or be written up for violating company policy. Our experienced lawyers know how to expose the discrimination or retaliation behind the adverse actions. Our record of verdicts and settlements includes many cases of wrongful termination.

Our attorneys will assert your rights and remedies under California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other laws. Compensation for wrongful discharge may include back pay, front pay, benefits, emotional distress, punitive damages and attorneys’ fees.
