Been fired? Was it wrongful termination under the law?

Losing a job can devastate an individual and/or an entire family. Some California residents may have known that the termination was coming because they just could not catch on the work, meet deadlines or otherwise meet the expectations of the job. In other cases, it seems to come out of nowhere, and the individual who lost the job may wonder whether it was wrongful termination.

If an employer violated federal or California law when letting someone go, legal options may be available to that individual. Discrimination is one of the laws that some employers violate when it comes to terminating someone. It is not enough for the employee to claim discrimination; rather, appropriate evidence must be documented, which can encompass a wide array of situations, comments, acts and more.

If an individual claims that retaliation led to his or her firing, it could constitute a violation of the law by the employer. Again, evidence proving this is the situation must be present. Perhaps the situation started out as harassment or discrimination and the employee filed a complaint. Then, the employer terminated him or her because of it. That would constitute an illegal act, but the courts require more than the employee's perception of the situation.

Building a case for wrongful termination is not always an easy task. California residents who believe this is what happened in their cases need to understand their rights, know what circumstances support their position and learn what steps to take next. Many people in this position choose to discuss the matter with an attorney in order to know which way to turn.
