What is Wrongful Termination?
When a company fires you without just cause, you have been unlawfully terminated. If your employer terminates you because of your age, race or religion, you may be able to file an employee discrimination lawsuit against the company. Other forms of unjust firings include:
- Getting let go for becoming pregnant
- Being laid off for retribution after filing a sexual harassment or discrimination claim
- Receiving a pink slip because of a medical condition
Wrongful termination can also occur when your employer makes working conditions so terrible that you must quit. Employment lawyers will assess your case to recommend the best course of legal action. Call us at (661)616-9829 for reliable representation today.
Workers who clock more than 40 hours during a one-week period must be paid overtime wages for the extra hours worked. This totals one-and-one-half times your regular pay rate. Unfortunately, some employers violate this requirement. Occasionally, an employer may even fail to pay a worker the proper amount of regular wages or violate the country’s laws regarding meal and work breaks. If this happens to you, consider hiring an employment attorney. The law firm of Chain | Cohn | Stiles can help you get compensation for missing wages and overtime.
In the workplace, harassing someone sexually violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1984. This type of harassment occurs when an employee, a manager or a CEO makes unsolicited sexual advances towards another worker. Requesting sexual favors, behaving in a sexual way or making sexually charged statements are all considered harassment. Be sure to contact an employment lawyer if you’re dealing with an inappropriate sexual situation at work. If you’ve been fired for reporting harassment, you may need to file an employee discrimination lawsuit.
