Retaliatory Discharge Attorneys Los Angeles
California is an at-will employment state, which allows an employer to terminate employment with or without cause. There are, however, exceptions to this rule. An employer cannot fire an employee on a discriminatory basis (gender, religion, national origin, etc.) or for reporting an instance of discrimination in the workplace.
If you believe you were fired for reporting discrimination by your employer, Allred, Maroko & Goldberg can help you understand your legal options and take appropriate action. As employment law attorneys, we understand the state and federal employment laws that protect workers from retaliatory discharge. Contact our law firm for sound legal advice.
Under state and federal laws, an employee cannot be fired or otherwise punished for engaging in protected conduct:
- Reporting harassment
- Reporting discrimination ( whistleblower cases)
- Refusing to engage in illegal activity
- Serving in the armed forces reserves
- Requesting overtime pay or additional benefits
An employee who has experienced retaliatory discharge may be entitled to compensation. Monetary damages may be available for lost wages, lost benefits, emotional suffering, and possible punitive damages.
