What Does Wrongful Termination Look Like in the Workplace? 

Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is unlawfully fired, violating employment laws or public policy. It can happen for various reasons, including:

  • Discrimination: Firing based on protected characteristics like race, gender, age, or disability.
  • Retaliation: Dismissal as punishment for protected activities like reporting harassment or exercising legal rights.
  • Breach of Contract: Violating terms of an employment contract, whether written or implied.
  • Violation of Public Policy: Termination for reasons against public interest, such as whistleblowing.

Understanding your employment rights in California is crucial. Victims may seek relief like reinstatement or compensation. Consulting a seasoned wrongful termination lawyer in Torrance can clarify your options and protect your rights.

Understanding Wrongful Termination Laws in California

California’s laws on wrongful termination provide robust safeguards for employees against unjust dismissals. Understanding these regulations is vital for employers and employees alike to navigate employment relationships effectively.

Here’s an in-depth look at California’s wrongful termination laws:

  1. At-Will Employment: While California follows the principle of at-will employment, allowing employers to terminate employees for legal reasons, exceptions exist.
  2. Protected Characteristics: Under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), employers cannot fire employees based on protected traits like race, gender, age, or disability.
  3. Retaliation Protections: California law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for engaging in protected activities, such as reporting workplace discrimination.
  4. Whistleblower Protections: Whistleblowers reporting illegal activities or safety violations are shielded from retaliation under California law.
  5. Breach of Contract: Wrongful termination can occur if an employer violates an employment contract, whether written or implied.
  6. Public Policy Exceptions: Firing an employee for refusing to participate in illegal activities or exercising legal rights may constitute wrongful termination.
  7. Remedies: Successful claims may result in remedies such as reinstatement, back pay, compensatory damages, and attorney fees.

Have You Been Wrongfully Terminated?

Determining if your termination was wrongful involves examining the circumstances surrounding your dismissal and understanding your legal rights. Several indicators may suggest wrongful termination. 

Firstly, if you were fired due to protected characteristics like race, gender, age, or disability, it could be wrongful. Similarly, if your dismissal was retaliation for protected activities like reporting harassment, it might be considered wrongful. 

Additionally, termination that breaches an employment contract, whether explicit or implied, could be wrongful. If your dismissal violates public policy, such as being fired for whistleblowing, it may also be wrongful. Lastly, if your employer terminated you for reasons against the law or company policies, you could have a claim.

If you suspect you were wrongfully terminated, speak with our employment attorneys. At Feher Law, we can evaluate the circumstances of your dismissal, advise you on your legal rights, and help you determine the best course of action to pursue.


Why Hire a Torrance Wrongful Termination Attorney? 

Dealing with legal matters at work, such as filing complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or pursuing legal recourse for issues like harassment or unfair treatment, can be daunting when you’re alone. The intricacies of wrongful termination laws, both federal and in California, can make it challenging to understand your rights and the appropriate steps to take next.

That’s where having a reliable attorney from our firm can be invaluable. In such situations, it’s not just about seeking justice but also about securing fair treatment and alleviating stress. Our team will actively pursue your wrongful termination case to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for being unjustly fired.

With us handling the complex legal procedures, you can find peace of mind and focus on moving forward. Leveraging our experience and commitment, you stand a better chance of winning your case and obtaining the fair treatment you’re entitled to.

What is the Deadline to File a Wrongful Termination Case? 

In California, workers who suspect they’ve been unjustly dismissed have a two-year timeframe from their termination to commence legal proceedings against their employer.

If you’re terminated for reasons that violate essential societal standards—such as retaliation for whistleblowing or discrimination based on protected traits—you have up to two years to pursue justice and potentially file a lawsuit to obtain compensation or other forms of relief.

Steps to Take After You’ve Been Wrongfully Terminated

The initial steps to take after being wrongfully terminated involve protecting your rights and gathering evidence to support your case. Here’s a guide on how to start:

  1. Review Your Employment Contract: If you have an employment contract, review it to understand your rights and any provisions related to termination.
  2. Document Everything: Keep detailed records of the events leading up to your termination, including emails, performance reviews, witness statements, and any relevant documentation.
  3. Review Company Policies: Familiarize yourself with your employer’s policies on termination, discrimination, and retaliation to determine if your rights have been violated.
  4. Seek Legal Advice: Consult with an experienced wrongful termination lawyer to discuss your situation and explore your legal options. They can provide guidance on the best course of action and help you navigate the legal process.
  5. File a Complaint: If you believe you’ve been wrongfully terminated, consider filing a complaint with the appropriate government agency, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). Feher Law will guide you through this.
  6. Preserve Evidence: Preserve any evidence related to your termination, such as emails, performance evaluations, and witness statements, as this may be crucial in supporting your case.
  7. Stay Calm and Professional: While it’s natural to feel upset and angry after being terminated, try to remain calm and professional in your interactions with your employer and others involved in the process.
  8. Consider Your Next Steps: Depending on your circumstances, you may choose to pursue legal action against your employer or explore other avenues for resolving the issue, such as mediation or negotiation.

By taking these steps, you can protect your rights and begin the process of seeking justice for wrongful termination.

What Can I Expect to Pay? 

With Feher Law, you don’t have to worry about paying anything upfront for your employment law claim. We operate on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will be charged fees once we successfully resolve your case.

Our contingency fee structure is simple: we only get paid if we win your case and secure compensation for you. This ensures that our goals are aligned with yours, and you can trust that we’re fully committed to fighting for the justice and settlement you deserve.

FAQs

The termination rules vary depending on factors such as employment contracts, company policies, and state laws. Employers are generally required to provide termination notice, comply with contractual obligations, and adhere to anti-discrimination laws. Additionally, some states have specific regulations regarding notice periods, severance pay, and reasons for termination.

When responding to termination of employment, it's essential to remain calm and professional. Consider asking your employer to clarify the reasons for termination and reviewing your rights, including any severance pay or benefits entitlements. If appropriate, negotiate the terms of your departure, such as references or continuation of benefits. It's also advisable to seek legal advice to understand your options and ensure your rights are protected.

In general, wrongful termination settlements can range from a few thousand dollars to several hundred thousand dollars or even a million dollars like our last wrongfully terminated client. However, it's essential to note that each case is unique, and there is no fixed average settlement amount. Factors such as the severity of the misconduct, the impact on the employee's career and livelihood, and the defendant's willingness to negotiate can all influence the final settlement amount.
