Wrongful Termination

To most people, having a steady job is very important and an absolute necessity. Unfortunately, people are terminated from their job all the time. Although someone may have had legitimate reasons to do so, there are many cases when an employee was fired for unfair reasons or for circumstances that are out of the employee’s control. This is called wrongful termination. This happens throughout California all the time, including Hollywood. If this has happened to you, keep in mind that there are California laws that will protect you. More importantly, you should contact an attorney in Hollywood to assist you through this ordeal and fight for your rights for compensation.

In California, it is against the law to fire someone because of the following:

  • Race
  • Nationality
  • Gender
  • Religion
  • Disabilities
  • Age
  • Sexual Orientation

These laws fall under the FEHA; the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. This act also protects against the termination of an employee because an employee has complained about certain things, such as being harassed. Additionally, those who are threatened or are fired because they did not want to keep any illegal company activity a secret or they refused to participate in any illegal activity may also receive compensation for wrongful termination. A Hollywood attorney will fight against any retaliation that occurred if you refused to be apart of something illegal when it came to your job.

If you feel your demotion or termination had nothing to do with your work performance but actually was due to an unrelated matter, you may receive compensation for lost wages and benefits, punitive damages, and any emotional distress that was brought on from the loss of your position. Contact an attorney today if you or someone close to you is going through a wrongful termination situation in the Hollywood area.
