Losing a job comes with great stress and uncertainty. If your employer fires you wrongfully, this stress is compounded. But with the help of a Garden Grove CA employment law attorney, you may be able to file a wrongful termination claim against your employer. Wrongful termination often arises when an employee reports an illegal or unethical situation and then is retaliated against as a result. You don’t have to deal with this situation alone. Rubin Law Corporation can help you file a wrongful termination claim as well as recover damages for your losses.
Most types of discrimination are illegal in the workplace. In particular, federal law prohibits discrimination based on race, sex, disability, religion, and age. In addition, California state law prohibits discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity, medical conditions, marital status, and genetic information. Any discrimination based on these characteristics is illegal.
You may face two different forms of employment discrimination in the workplace:
- Hostile work environment
- Negative employment actions
If you are facing harassment due to your personal characteristics, or you are subject to negative employment actions, you may have a discrimination claim. Negative employment actions may include termination, demotion, failure to promote, cut in pay, or anything that negatively impacts your employment. Your need an experienced Garden Grove CA employment law attorney to help you litigate this type of claim.
If someone creates a hostile work environment and sexually harasses you in the workplace, you have legal recourse. Sexual harassment often amounts to discrimination based on sex, gender, or identity. It is ongoing, inappropriate behavior directed at you based on your sex or other protected characteristic. Some employees, however, are unsure whether the treatment they are receiving qualifies as harassment. Consult with an attorney to find out if you have a valid claim.
Wage and Hour Claims
Your regular wages and overtime pay have protections under both state and federal laws. Most employers have a legal obligation to abide by these laws and properly classify employees. Wage and hour claims often arise when employers fail to properly pay employees. They may fail to calculate overtime pay correctly, fail to pay you appropriately during breaks, or not give you rest and meal breaks. If you feel you have a wage and hour claim, contact Rubin Law Corporation to see how we can help.
A whistleblower is someone who reports an employer for illegal activities or violations of government laws or regulations. In many cases, the employee who takes such actions is terminated. This is illegal, as state and federal laws protect you from this type of behavior.
If your employer is engaging in wrongful activities, you may want to consult with a lawyer before filing a report. However, if you have already submitted a report, and faced negative actions against you as a result, then we can help with a whistleblower claim.
If you report discrimination in the workplace and then are wrongfully terminated as a result, you may be involved in lawsuits for discrimination, wrongful termination, and whistleblowing. You need to work with an attorney who has experience with all of these types of employment claims.

You may need someone to review your employment documents or navigate a difficult situation. At Rubin Law Corporation, we provide you with both timely and valuable guidance.
