Wrongful Termination Lawyer

While California is an “at will” state that allows employers to fire employees for almost any reason or no reason at all, employees cannot be fired for an unlawful reason or for exercising their legal rights under the law.

Do I Have A Wrongful Termination Case?

At Shanberg Stafford LLP, located in Newport Beach, California, our wrongful termination attorney Orange County represents the victims of sexual harassment and other forms of employment discrimination and wrongful termination. Our wrongful termination lawyers have significant experience in this area of the law and know how to help.

Our wrongful termination lawyer handles matters, including:

Identifying Unlawful Firing

An example of an unlawful firing is where an employer terminates an employee based on some legally protected characteristic such as the employee’s physical or mental disability, pregnancy, race, national origin, gender or age. Similarly, an employee who is fired for lawfully taking medical leave, stepping forward as a whistleblower or in retaliation for reporting harassment (or other unlawful activity in the workplace) can seek damages against his or her employer. Additionally, while an employee handbook is generally not considered a legal contract, employers may be held accountable for what is in the handbook or for not having stated policies in place.

Get in touch with our wrongful termination lawyer in Orange County to discuss your case.

Wrongful Termination, Discrimination And Harassment

In California, a discrimination claim can be filed with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). State law is often interpreted more generously toward employees than federal law, especially claims of sexual harassment or disability discrimination. For example, California’s anti-discrimination law covers some employers who are too small to be protected by federal law.

Representing Employers In Discrimination Claims

Shanberg Stafford LLP also represents employers in discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims brought before the EEOC and the DFEH. These and other claims, including wage and hour disputes, often occur when employers are simply unaware of their responsibilities to employees.
