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.

Have you lost your job in Hollywood or any other city in California and you feel it was wrongful termination and you feel you might need an attorney to represent you? An wrongful termination attorney at the Steven M. Sweat, Personal Injury Lawyers, APC can help. Contact a Hollywood attorney today!

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.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends.
★★★★★
Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service. Cheryl S.

I must tell anyone, if you need a great attorney, Steve sweat is the guy! I had an awful car accident and had no idea where to turn. He had so much to deal with because my accident was a 4 car pile up. Not to mention all the other cars were behind me and they were not wanting to settle in any way! He never stopped working for me and had my best interest at heart! Audra W.
