Losing a job is a devastating and disruptive situation for most. It can be especially difficult if you have been terminated for what you believe to be a wrongful or objectionable reason. Trying to make sense of your situation and working to determine whether or not you have legal recourse can be complicated, but Liberty Man Law, P.C. offers a free consultation in order to discuss the specifics of your termination and to provide specific legal advice about how to best move forward with your case.
Liberty Man Law, P.C. primarily focuses on issues surrounding discrimination based on a protected characteristic, disability accommodations, and medical leaves, as well as employees suffering from retaliation from their employer for lodging a complaint about wage pay or OSHA violations. Reporting discrimination or illegal activity is a difficult decision to make. While retaliation is expressly illegal, many employers will work to find ways to terminate an employee while covering their tracks to avoid legal liability. It takes a substantial amount of courage to report wrongdoing, and we respect those who come forward.
Trying to unravel the details of your situation and proving that the company or the HR department did terminate your employment illegally is complicated. Liberty Man Law, P.C. understands the ins and outs of California employment laws and is prepared to help you make sense of your situation. Contact Liberty Man Law, P.C. today!
What Is Employment Litigation?
Employment litigation is a form of legal action that occurs when an employer has committed some type of violation against their employees. There are many different types of employment disputes that may occur. This can include discrimination, failure to pay wages, sexual harassment, and worker’s compensation abuse (to name a few). With such a variety of possible causes for litigation, employers need to understand the difference between the various types as well as how to avoid them.
Make Sure the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) Works For You
The Fair Employment and Housing Act was established to protect employees from experiencing unlawful discrimination while at work. The law is enforced by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). Under the FEHA, it is illegal for employers with five or more employees to treat job applicants or workers unfairly based on certain personal characteristics such as:
- Citizenship Status
- Gender (includes pregnancy)
- Marital Status
- Medical Condition (cancer included)
- Military or Veteran Status
- National Origin/Ancestry
- Race or Ethnicity (such as African American, Asian/Pacific Islander, Caucasian/White, Hispanic/Latino)
- Religion (includes religious dress and grooming practices)
- Sexual Orientation
In order to be protected under FEHA, you need to show your employer was mistreating you in relation to one of the above characteristics. Working with an attorney is one of the best ways to have a clear understanding of your rights and options as a member of a protected class in terms of California employment law. We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to take a look at your case today.
