If your employer wrongfully fires you from your job, you may be able to regain your job or recover damages. Often, wrongful termination arises when you are sexually harassed or discriminated against, you report the situation, and then are terminated as a result. You may have spoken up about something illegal at your workplace and in turn, you were terminated. Each of these situations is illegal and amounts to wrongful termination. You have legal recourse. Rubin Law Corporation can help.
State and federal laws prohibit most types of discrimination in the workplace. Federal laws specifically protect employees against discrimination due to race, race, sex, disability, religion, and age. California extends those protections to also include sexual orientation, gender identity, medical conditions, and marital status. If your employer discriminated against you because of the things listed here, contact a Huntington Beach CA employment law attorney.
Employment discrimination may take two different forms in the workplace:
- Hostile work environment, or harassment
- Negative employment decisions
If you’ve faced either of these situations, you may be eligible for damages based on how the discrimination has impacted you.
Sexual harassment in the workplace often comes in the form of a hostile work environment. You may be discriminated against due to sex, gender, or identity. You may have faced unfair treatment due to pregnancy. All of these things may qualify as sexual harassment under the law if the behavior is ongoing and pervasive.
Wage and Hour Claims
California has strict laws regarding the payment of employees. And federal law backs up those state laws to protect you. If you’ve been incorrectly paid, then you may have a wage and hour claim. If you have questions about how you should have been paid, call a Huntington Beach CA employment law attorney.
Most employers must abide by these laws. However, even if your employer is exempt from federal laws, they likely must abide by California state laws. Similarly, some employees are exempt from things like overtime. However, if you were wrongly classified and unfairly paid, then a wage and hour claim may be right in your situation.
If you know of something illegal that your employer is doing, you may want to report it. But many employees worry about their jobs and and wonder what will happen after making such a report. Federal and California state laws are in place to protect you. Whether you know about violations by your employer or other illegal activities, your reporting the unethical behavior is in the best interest of the public.
Although the law protects whistleblowers, your employer may wrongfully terminate you if you report them for their illegal actions. In such a situation, you can recover damages, and you may even be able to obtain your position at work again. A lawyer can help you understand your rights as well as provide guidance as to what actions you can take to protect yourself.
