Do I have a wrongful termination case?

You may have a wrongful termination case if you feel you’ve been:

  • Wrongfully terminated in violation of employment agreements
  • Wrongfully terminated in violation of federal and state anti-discrimination laws
  • Wrongfully terminated in violation of labor laws, including collective bargaining laws
  • Wrongfully terminated as a form of sexual harassment
  • Wrongfully terminated in retaliation for having filed a complaint or claim against your employer.

If you feel you’ve been a victim of wrongful termination, you will need to speak to an attorney. Wrongful termination lawyer John Gomez is highly experienced with employment law matters and offers free consultations. We will even take your case on a contingency basis, meaning you pay nothing unless we win. During the free consultation, we will tell you whether your rights were violated when you fired or when you “resigned”. Some of the documentation that will help us determine your case include your employment application, company handbook or employee manual, your contract, job description, pre-employment screening documentation, resume, payroll records, names and addresses of other workers who have either shared your company problems or have information about your work situation, attendance records, performance evaluations, and any record you’ve kept (if any) of the chronology of events that have taken place regarding your case.

Wrongful termination cases can be difficult to prove since California is an “at-will” employment state. “At-will” means that an employee can quit at any time and an employer can fire an employee at any time and for any reason. Because this is a contract rule, the employer and employee are free to change it by agreement. But if their agreement is silent on the question, then the employee can be discharged without warning, without a hearing, and without a reason. It is important to understand however that there are exceptions to this rule. Contact us today and find out how wrongful termination attorney John Gomez can help you.
