What Is Wrongful Termination?
Wrongful termination refers to the firing or laying-off of an employee for an illegal reason (one that violates our anti-discrimination, anti-retaliation or other labor laws). Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination in any aspect of employment, including:
- Hiring and firing
- Compensation, assignment or classification of employees
- Transfer, promotion, layoff or recall
- Job advertisements
- Use of company facilities
- Training and apprenticeship programs
- Fringe benefits
- Pay, retirement plans and disability leave
If you have been wrongfully terminated, contact York Law Firm to schedule a case evaluation with one of our wrongful termination attorneys based in Sacramento. (You may also call us toll-free at 916-643-2200 or complete a short questionnaire [subject to a consultation fee].) We also handle such employment matters as employment discrimination, retaliation, workplace harassment, workers’ compensation, and wage claim disputes.
What To Do If You’ve Been Wrongfully Terminated in Sacramento
Wrongful termination means an employee has been unfairly discharged. However, not every unfair discharge constitutes wrongful termination. Contact York Law Firm for a consultation to determine whether you have been wrongfully terminated according to California employment law.
Wrongful Termination Compensation
An employer who wrongfully terminates an employee may face statutory penalties or may be made to pay damages (including a severance package or unemployment compensation) to cover the employee’s lost wages and possibly additional expenses. In some cases, an employer may be forced to pay punitive damages (monetary reward to the plaintiff as punishment for the defendant’s wrongful act). If you have a potential wrongful termination case, it is crucial that you hire an attorney with experience in the area of California employment law. At York Law Firm, our wrongful termination lawyers have precisely the experience you need to win your case.
