Despite California being an “at-will” employment status state (as well as every state in the union except Montana), workers can still be wrongfully terminated for many different reasons. You have protections if you fall under one of a number of categories. Do you believe that you were fired or written up because:
- You rejected a sexual advance by your employer?
- You did not tolerate sexual conversations by your employer?
- You are pregnant?
- You come from a different country?
- You reported an unlawful activity by your employer?
- You complained about unsafe working conditions at work?
- You were injured at work?
- You are disabled?
- Your race?
- Your sexual orientation or preferred gender identity?
- You took time off work to take care of a sick child (or loved one)?
- Your religion or spiritual beliefs?
These are only a few, but not all, of the examples of how your employer can discriminate against you and wrongfully terminate your employment. Our attorneys at The Law Office of Hewgill, Cobb and Lockard have experience in representing workers using the protections found in State and Federal law, to obtain justice for workers who were wrongfully terminated.
