California employees work hard every day, but all too often, their efforts are rewarded with wrongful termination. This is an especially notable risk for those who strive to free their workplace of discrimination or other types of mistreatment through whistleblowing.
Aggressive Representation For Wrongfully Terminated Employees
If you were wrongfully terminated or retaliated against for your efforts to shine a light on wrongs in the workplace, you deserve justice. You can achieve it with help from the Law Offices of Ann A. Hull, Inc. A highly respected California employment & labor attorney, Ann Hull is determined to hold the state’s most problematic employers accountable, while also helping clients secure deserved remuneration and peace of mind.
Defining Wrongful Termination
California law presumes that workers are employed at-will, and that they can be terminated at any time and for any reason. However, employers cannot fire employees in retaliation for complaining about an unlawful practice at work (such as not paying overtime, providing breaks, etc.). Likewise, in general, employers can not fire a worker for requesting family or medical leave, or for being injured, ill, or pregnant. Termination based on race, gender, religion, disability, pregnancy, or numerous other factors are unlawful.
Options For Wronged Employees
If you were wrongfully fired by an employer, you enjoy numerous opportunities for recourse. Your best bet may be to file a lawsuit, through which you can obtain damages while also holding your former employer accountable.
By filing a wrongful termination lawsuit, you could potentially recover not only lost wages, but also compensation for any emotional duress suffered due to the employer’s retaliatory efforts. Navigating the legal system is no easy feat, however, so it’s important to work with an aggressive California employment attorney such as Ann Hull.
