LABOR & EMPLOYMENT LAW / WRONGFUL TERMINATION

Wrongful Termination Attorneys in California

Remedies for unlawful firing

California is an at-will employment state — meaning that neither the employer nor the employee requires a reason to terminate their employment relationship and can do so at any time. However, these rights are subject to federal and California regulations that prohibit discharge based on the employee’s participation in a union, refusal to engage in illegal activity, whistleblowing or membership in a protected class.Our California wrongful termination lawyers at Aiman-Smith & Marcy possess more than 60 years of combined experience representing employees who have been wrongfully discharged. We pursue monetary damages to compensate you for your lost income, diminished career advancement opportunities and emotional distress suffered as a result of your employer’s actions. If appropriate in your case, we also seek injunctive relief to restore you to your rightful position.

Your rights against workplace discrimination and harassment

You should be judged by your abilities and skills, not by arbitrary qualities that do not affect your job performance. State and federal statutes forbid discrimination based on your membership in a protected class — such as age, disability, medical condition, national origin, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender or pregnancy. These factors cannot be considered in  hiring, pay, benefits, promotion, work assignments or dismissal. In addition, you have the right to report harassment by your boss, a supervisor in another division, coworker or client, and you cannot be fired for doing so. Our California workplace harassment lawyers demand that you are treated with the respect you deserve in the workplace and seeks legal recourse against employers who violates workers’ rights.

Protection from whistleblower retaliation

Whistleblowers are afforded a high level of protection from retribution. California and federal laws prohibit your employer from taking retaliatory action against you for reporting illegal conduct or for cooperating in an investigation conducted by law enforcement or a government agency of the company’s negligent or criminal actions. Under the regulations, your employer cannot blacklist, demote, fire, discipline, intimidate or threaten you for whistleblowing. Our California labor and employment lawyers pursue all available remedies for your employer’s violation of these important whistleblower statutes.
