A person's life is usually not defined by their job. People have their family, their friends, their hobbies and other things to fill their lives. However, a person's job is often an important part of the individual's life. A job not only helps people to pay for their living expenses, but it is also something that a lot of people take pride in.
When people lose their job because of an employer's illegal actions, they can be devastated. Wrongful termination takes an emotional and financial toll. Without their job, people can have a difficult time paying their bills. They may have to take on debt in order to survive. Their professional relationships and contacts might also suffer as a result of the termination. Future employers may be leery of hiring someone who has been terminated in the past. In some cases, people can spend months or years trying to find another job in their field. They may lose job skills, training and education. Overall, their career might suffer.
A wrongful termination should not affect the long-term trajectory of a California resident's career. Our law firm understands how real these consequences are for those people. We also know that California laws are in place to help protect people from these consequences. Our experienced legal professionals can help to explain how these laws apply in a particular situation.
We attempt to use our knowledge to help people minimize the damage of a wrongful termination. Through negotiating with an employer, bringing an employment lawsuit or filing a complaint with a governmental agency, we try to help employees get justice and put their careers back on the right track.
