We have represented hundreds of clients as Wrongful Termination Lawyers. Although California is an "at-will" state giving employers a tremendous amount of power to terminate, employers do not have the absolute right to terminate employees if they are doing so for unlawful reasons.
We are Employment Law Attorneys who protect employees against discrimination because of their race, physical / mental disability, medical condition, gender, age, religious creed,
national origin, sexual orientation and other protected categories.
Employees who report or oppose unlawful behavior by their employers are protected by anti-retaliation laws from adverse employment actions including, but not limited to, suspensions, demotions and terminations. As wrongful termination lawyers and employment law attorneys in Orange County, we protect you from being retaliated against.
Employees are protected against two common types of sexual harassment by co-workers and sometimes even third parties: 1). hostile work environment and 2). quid pro quo.
Employers are obligated to pay employees completely and on time every pay period. At the end of employment, all outstanding wages must be paid on time or substantial penalties may apply. Attorney's fees, penalties, interest and costs may be recoverable. Employment law attorneys help you get everything you are legally entitled to receive.
We regularly draft, review and provide advice on severance agreements to individuals and companies. Negotiating and aggressively representing your legal rights to leverage the best outcome for you is something we've done for over 20 years.
California law requires employers to conduct a good faith, independent and thorough investigation. Taking a proactive, documented, and well-reasoned approach assists with resolving claims and litigation. As wrongful termination lawyers and employment law attorneys, we make sure that all California and Federal laws are followed.
