Wrongful Termination Attorneys in Los Angeles, California
"Protecting the rights of California employees, one client at a time."
The Los Angeles employment law offices of Allred, Maroko & Goldberg receive numerous calls each day from individuals who have lost their job and feel that they have been fired unfairly. The immediate and natural reaction to file a complaint must be tempered with the fact that California is an "at will" employment state. This means employees can generally be let go for any reason or no reason at all, even if the reason is dubious. There are very specific exceptions to "employment at will" rules, however, including:
- Violations of existing employment contracts
- Fraud or misrepresentation
- Firing after inducement
- "Implied contracts"
- Retaliatory discharge, including whistleblower claims
- Violations of public policy, including sexual harassment and pregnancy discrimination
Allred, Maroko & Goldberg practices solely in the field of employment law. The firm has helped employees across California to recover compensation, benefits and professional standing resulting from a wrongful termination lawsuit. If you feel you have been wrongfully terminated for any of the reasons above, please contact our employee rights law firm to have your case evaluated by an experienced Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyer.
Do You Have a Viable Employee Rights Claim?
Since California practices "at will" employment, the notion of "fairness" in a firing is never really an issue. The issue is, rather, the identification of a viable legal theory that establishes the existence of sexual harassment, discrimination, whistleblower retaliation and other violations of employee rights.
You have many options available if you feel that you are the victim of wrongful termination. One option is to file complaints with appropriate government agencies, including the EEOC and the Department of Labor. Based on careful investigation and application of California law, you may also have recourse to a wrongful termination lawsuit.
An attorney from Allred, Maroko & Goldberg can evaluate your situation and make recommendations based on 38 years of practical experience negotiating and litigating these specific types of legal actions. When evaluating a case, our attorneys consider things such as:
- Number of years served
- Performance based on positive evaluations, promotions, salary raises and bonuses
- Existing company policies, written or oral, describing disciplinary and termination procedures
- Other relevant criteria
You will receive an honest assessment of your situation and legal options. Once a determination is made, our lawyers will assist you in taking the next steps toward protecting your rights.
