FIGHTING FOR EMPLOYEES IN LOS ANGELES, RIVERSIDE, SAN BERNARDINO AND ORANGE COUNTIES
It is illegal for your employer to fire you:
In order to prevail on a wrongful termination claim based on a discrimination or retaliation theory, an employee must produce evidence showing that their protected characteristic or protected activity was at least a substantial motivating reason, although not necessarily the only reason, for the employer’s termination decision. Such evidence often includes direct written or oral statements of the employer or its agents, instances of similar discrimination or retaliation in the workplace, the timing of the adverse action, and/or a showing that the employer’s cited reason for the termination lacks credence.
The type and extent of remedies available to an employee in a wrongful termination case depends on numerous factors, but often sought remedies include past lost wages, future lost wages, compensatory damages for pain and suffering and attorneys fees and costs. Depending on the facts and legal claims in the case, punitive damages may be available. Additionally, under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and other statutes, while not commonly exercised, the Court has the power to issue injunctive and equitable relief, for instance ordering reinstatement of a wrongfully terminated employee.
