About Legal Claims Over Wrongful Termination

Have you been terminated or fired and believe the termination was wrongful? If the answer is “yes,” then you should contact an attorney immediately. It may be your perception that you were fired for an illegal reason such as your sexual orientation, marital status or medical condition. Were you, in fact, a target of illegal discrimination resulting in the loss of your job? You need and deserve legal counsel to understand what may have happened and what to do to stand up for your employee rights.

At The Law Office of David P. Strauss, our San Diego employment lawyer works to obtain compensation for California wrongful termination victims. People rarely believe they are rightfully terminated, and unfair treatment does not necessarily equate into unlawful treatment or a claim. That is why it is critical that you seek legal counsel if you think you have an employment law claim. Contact our California wrongful termination attorney for a free initial consultation.

What Is Wrongful Termination?

Under California law, a wrongful termination case usually falls under one of the following categories:

  • Violation of an employment agreement or contract
  • Discrimination cases
  • Whistleblower/public policy cases

Wrongful termination cases take many different forms. A hostile work environment is one in which there is discrimination or unfair treatment against a class of employees based on their race, age, gender, religion or national origin. Consult our employment discrimination lawyer to know your rights.

A whistleblower may face workplace retaliation for a reason that offends public policy or because he or she has been complaining of illegal conduct on the part of the employer. Sometimes the employee has been asked to violate the law. In such cases, we work to obtain damages on behalf of our whistleblower clients.

How Do I Prove Wrongful Termination In San Diego?

The sooner you have legal advice, the more informed you will be and ready to document evidence of discrimination or retaliation, possibly including:

  • Journal entries you have kept over time detailing instances of sexual harassment, your reporting of it and your boss’s response or lack of response
  • Emails, photos and other illustrative details giving credence to your reports alleging harassment, discrimination and/or retaliation
  • Eyewitness testimonies from co-workers corroborating your stories of illegal discrimination, such as recollections of your emotional distress over sexual harassment leading up to your termination
  • Minutes from meetings and other indicators of managers’ intentions regarding age discrimination or other illegal forms of discrimination

Attorney David P. Strauss will guide you in putting together the proof you may need to bring a wrongful termination claim against your former employer.
