Bay Area Lawyer Representing Wrongfully Terminated Employees
I have met many people whose employment has been wrongfully terminated. They feel panicked, helpless and disempowered. Their financial security is threatened. They are humiliated and embarrassed. Discrimination of some sort or another has disrupted their lives and cost them their financial security.
Fired people want justice, a clean work record and positive employment references. As an employment law attorney, I may be able to help. To discuss the details of your potentially wrongful termination, contact my office. I offer understanding of your situation and the tools to make a difference.
Was the Economic Rug Pulled out from Under You?
My clients have found themselves facing hardship because someone in a supervisory position did not approve of their person, actions or beliefs. This may be unlawful. In California, an employer cannot fire an employee based on:
- Age or gender
- Disability or pregnancy
- Race or national origin
- Religious beliefs
- Sexual orientation or marital status
Terminating an employee because of any of these types of unlawful discrimination is a violation of either state or federal law, or both. Wrongful termination can also come about as a result of sexual harassment.
Other Violations of Your Rights
Discriminatory abuse by employers is not limited to being fired from a job. An employer might be more understated.
- You had previously received glowing evaluations, but they suddenly become negative.
- Someone less qualified than you gets the promotion you wanted.
- You do not receive the annual raise in salary that you've been accustomed to.
If you have suffered any of these, or similar adverse events due to the illegal behavior of an employer, your rights have been violated. I may be able to help.
