Termination of employment based on factors such as race and sexual orientation, or in retaliation for reporting employer legal infractions is all too common. It is also illegal.
At the Long Beach and Los Angeles, California, employment law firm of Lyon Law, we have settled dozens of wrongful termination actions for individuals fired illegally and unfairly from their jobs.
Were you fired by your employer? Do you have questions regarding whether your termination was fair and legal? Contact an experienced attorney at (310) 818-7700.
At Lyon Law, attorney Geoff Lyon has handled over 100 employment law cases. We can fight your wrongful termination if you were fired because of:
- A medical condition, pregnancy or a disability
- For reporting sexual harassment against yourself or a coworker
- Race, ancestry, national origin, age, religion or color
- Sexual orientation
- Retaliation for taking medical or disability leave under the Family Medical Leave Act
- Whistleblower retaliation
- Marital status
Wrongful termination laws apply in unexpected circumstances. For instance:
- If the reasons given for your termination were false, then the true reason may well be an illegal reason
- If you were injured, took time off and were fired weeks or months later, you may have a claim, regardless of whether or not the injury is work-related
- If you took time off work to care for a sick child, spouse or parent and were later fired, you may have a claim
- If friction with a new manager resulted in termination, you may have a claim
- If you were fired for attending a parent/teacher conference during work hours you may have a claim
We can conduct a full investigation through the legal discovery process, including interviews with former co-workers. However, it is important that you contact us soon. While some wrongful termination rights remain in effect for up to two years, many valuable rights are lost after one year.
