It doesn’t matter how good of a worker you are if your employer doesn’t like you for whatever reason, you may be in trouble. There are thousands of cases where an employee was bullied, discriminated, verbally and even physically abused and then laid off. These victims of wrongful termination are either too scared to do something about it or have no idea that they have every right to sue their employer.
Are you aware of your legal rights? Los Angeles Wrongful Termination Attorney advise you to seek legal counsel and learn how you can protect yourself from being wrongfully terminated. But first, you have to learn and understand the reasons behind the wrongful termination.
Jokes in the office are a common thing. However, when the line is crossed, joking becomes insulting and discriminating. If you are a victim of any type of workplace discrimination, you will have to endure verbal abusing and stress on a daily basis. In addition, you may get fired simply because you talked with someone about what is going on at work. That is of course if your employer finds out that you were complaining. But somehow, they always find out.
The most common types of workplace discrimination involve:
- Racial discrimination
- Sex discrimination
- Gender discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Ethnicity discrimination
- Discrimination based on political views
- Marital status discrimination
- Discrimination based on religion
Are you a victim of workplace discrimination? Give us a call immediately, and we will help you get to the bottom of it.
Another common reason behind someone’s “wrongful” firing is retaliation. When an employee reports something that may put the employer or the company in the bad spotlight (such as bad working conditions, discrimination at work, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse), the employer retaliates by terminating the employee. This has happened so many times in California, and it is actually very common. For this very reason, you should always consider having one of our Wrongful Termination Attorneys in Los Angeles on your speed dial. We are here to help you get to the bottom of it and protect your legal rights. Never again will you have to witness and endure injustice and remain still. With our help, you will be able to receive proper compensation for every insult and mistreatment you received at work. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
Another common reason why many employers wrongfully terminate their employees is their alien status. According to the Immigration Reform and Control Act, every employee who is legally allowed to stay and work within the United States cannot be laid off or fired for their alien status. When it happens, this is treated as wrongful termination, and certain actions are taken against the employer. That is in cases where a wrongfully terminated employee decides to seek justice and file a claim.
As an employee, you have the law in your corner. No one can take you for granted, abuse you or mistreat you. If and when this happens, all you have to do is give us a call, and we will take care of the rest on your behalf.
