Protecting Employees In Wrongful Termination Claims

Your gut instinct is telling you that you were fired for illegal reasons. This is not an easy issue to address or process, especially on your own. What can you do if you think you were wrongfully discharged from your job?

Our Commitment To You

Our attorneys at Rafii & Nazarian, LLP, will help you understand your rights and explore your options for seeking justice. As your advocates, we will stand up for you and provide tenacious representation in your case.

Who Can File A Claim?

Most employees are considered "at will" employees. What does "at will" mean? Employers have the right to demote or fire "at will" employees without just cause as long as it is for a legal reason. Employers can terminate an employee's position for a variety of reasons as long as it is not for an illegal reason.

Wrongful discharge claims may be pursued if you believe you were fired for any of the following reasons:

  • Discrimination of a protected class, including race, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion or political affiliation
  • Retaliation for reporting or blowing the whistle on hazards or illegal practices in the workplace, for taking time off or for filing a workers' compensation claim

You may be able to file a wrongful termination lawsuit against your employer under the Fair Employment and Housing Act as long as you meet certain criteria. We understand labor laws in California and have experience handling wrongful discharge claims on behalf of employees who have been mistreated by their employer.

Our lawyers continue to represent employees in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles and throughout the state in employment law claims involving wrongful termination and other labor law issues. Call us to discuss the process of filing a claim.

What We Do To Help

We will evaluate the factors in your case to determine if you have a claim. Evidence plays a vital role in these cases so it is important to document any incidents that show mistreatment or illegal actions by your employer. This includes keeping emails and text messages and obtaining witness accounts of your mistreatment at work.

We believe in providing personal attention to you after you have been mistreated or fired. This is a stressful time in your life. We understand how the loss of a job impacts you and your family. That is why we will advocate for you and take a stand against labor laws to protect your future.
