      Wrongful Termination Laws in California

      The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reported that there were 72,675 job discrimination charges in 2019. Under California law, wrongful termination occurs when an employer fires an employee for illegal reasons or in violation of a contract. If an employee has been terminated due to discrimination, the violation of public policy, a refusal to commit unlawful acts, or complaints about illegal workplace practices, they are considered to have been wrongfully terminated and have grounds for a wrongful termination claim.

We handle all aspects of the claim process, including explaining your legal options, investigating your claim, negotiating with the responsible parties, and litigating aggressively to protect your interests.

      Damages in A Wrongful Termination Case

      Being wrongfully terminated from your job can dramatically impact the future of you and your family. Whether you’re the head of a household with a family that depends on you or you simply provide a second income for your household, the financial brunt of a job loss can set you back substantially. A wrongful termination lawyer can help you get the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
      • Lost wages and benefits—This may include compensation for pay and the value of any benefits the employee could have expected to earn had a wrongful termination not occurred as well as any overtime or other compensation the employee is owed. Compensation for lost wages has two components: back pay and front pay. Back pay is calculated from the date your employment ended until the time of the trial. Front pay, on the other hand, is economic damages paid for the time between the court judgment and the time you return to work.
      • Emotional Distress—An unlawful job dismissal can be a traumatic and painful experience, not to mention humiliating. As a result, you can be compensated for any mental anguish, anxiety, depression, or loss of enjoyment you suffered as a result of unlawfully losing your job.
      • Punitive damages—On rare occasions, an employee can receive compensation for punitive damages in response to the employer’s behavior and is not contingent upon actual economic losses. In order to qualify for this compensation, the employer must be found guilty of retaliation or discrimination with the conscious knowledge that they violated the law.
