Even in employment, you have rights that protect your interests. In the event where you get fired for a cause that doesn’t make sense, or you feel it was unfair on your side, you may have a case that demands compensation. Wrongful termination in Torrance, CA, may hold water if:

You were discriminated

If your employer terminates your employment status or denies your promotion or pays you less money for the same work based on gender, race, disability, pregnancy, nationality, age, or sexual orientation, you qualify to sue him or her. Your lawyers will collect evidence that shows the discriminatory conduct and do our best to ensure that you get your compensation for wrongful termination in Torrance, CA.

You weren’t given a reason for getting fired

If your employer fires you without giving you a reason, or the given argument sounds hideous, you may qualify to file for a wrongful termination suit if the true reason for firing you violates an important law or public policy of the state of California. According to the law, lawyers can help you prove that the employer’s stated reason for terminating an employee’s employment status is a “mask” or “pretext” for an unlawful reason, such as discrimination or retaliation.

Poor timing

It is human to err, and the law and employer policies often take this into account. In many workplaces, employees commonly receive one or more documented warnings before a job termination. If you were fired for making a mistake before receiving a warning, and you believe the true reason for firing you is unlawful discrimination or retaliation, you may very well qualify to sue your boss for wrongful termination in Torrance, CA. For example, you may have complained to your supervisor or to HR about conduct that you believe is illegal and you are fired shortly after making the complaint. Your lawyer can help you gather the evidence you need to prove a claim for wrongful termination or retaliation.
