Wrongful Termination Claims
California is an at-will employment state, however that does not mean that you cannot be wrongfully discharged from your position. An employee is wrongfully terminated when he or she is fired for conduct that is protected by public policy. Our team at HKM Employment Attorneys represents clients who have been wrongfully terminated in court. If you bring a successful wrongful death claim, you may be entitled to significant compensation. An experienced Los Angeles employment law attorney from HKM will provide aggressive and knowledgeable representation so you get the outcome you deserve.
Many common reasons for wrongful discharge cases include:
- Retaliation for complaints of unethical or illegal behavior within the company
- Any type of discrimination, including gender, race, disability, religion, or sexual orientation
- Breach of an employment contract
- Retaliation for whistleblowing
- Retaliation for bringing a claim for worker’s compensation
- Refusing to violate a law if your employer requests it
- Exercising a legal or constitutional right
- Performing a legal obligation, such as jury duty
