What Can You Do if You’re Involved in an Unlawful Termination?

Your job is your livelihood, you simply cannot afford to stand by and do nothing if an employer violates the law by wrongfully terminating your employment. In California, the rights of employees are protected by laws and legal precedents that establish what may and may not be considered an illegal firing. Even though most employment relationships in California are considered “at-will”, which means that either party may terminate the relationship at any time for any reason, the law still protects at-will employees from termination for certain specific reasons as a matter of public policy. If you suspect that your rights may have been violated and you have been wrongfully terminated, avoid speaking to anybody in your former office about your case – even close friends – and talk with Advantage Law Group, your personal wrongful termination attorneys in San Diego, CA, as quickly as you can.

The law places limits on the amount of time that victims have to pursue damages in court for a wrongful termination claim – these limits are called statutes of limitation. It’s important to work quickly to secure a wrongful termination attorney in San Diego because you will have no standing to pursue damages through the courts if the statute of limitations expires. Different laws have different limits. By moving fast to secure an experienced attorney at Advantage Law Group, you give your attorney as much time as possible to investigate your claims and prepare your legal argument, which can only help your case in the long run.

In California, termination of employment is illegal when it is used as a form of harassment or discrimination based on your race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, physical / mental disability, medical condition, gender, age, sexual orientation, or marital status. In addition, your termination from an at-will employment relationship may not be used as a form of retaliation against you for reporting your employer for improper or criminal behavior, for taking part in a harassment or discrimination investigation of your employer, for legal union activity or taking part in an investigation conducted by a union, for taking family medical leave, or for applying for workers’ compensation benefits following an injury on the job.

Keep in mind that each case of alleged wrongful termination will consist of different facts which could weigh differently on each case. This is why it is so important to let an experienced attorney with Advantage Law Group serve as your wrongful termination attorney in San Diego.
