Have you been unfairly fired from your job in Long Beach? Do you feel lost and unsure about what steps to take next? It’s important to know your rights and know who can help you. That’s where a Long Beach wrongful termination lawyer can make a difference!

What Is Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful termination happens when your employer fires you for reasons that are against the law or in violation of a contract. As an employee in Long Beach, you have rights that protect you from wrongful termination. 

Discrimination

Discrimination occurs when your employer treats you unfairly because of who you are. The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the federal Civil Rights Act state that employers can’t fire someone based on things like race, gender, religion, disability, age, sexual orientation, or national origin. Examples of workplace discrimination include:

  • Laying off workers of a particular gender disproportionate to other workers,
  • Replacing someone over 40 with someone younger, 
  • Dismissing an employee due to their religious beliefs or sexual orientation, or 
  •  Firing someone who becomes pregnant or disabled.

Despite the existence of laws, discrimination continues to occur across various industries and professions. It is important to know your rights and get legal help if you have been wrongfully terminated due to discrimination.

I was really nervous about hiring a lawyer but Julian and everyone in her office made the process as stress-free as it could be. She is kind, reassuring and confident and that helps make the process feel less scary. she also knows what kinds of outcomes are reasonable and will explain in detail why, and has a plan to get there. I cannot recommend her more highly.

I had the pleasure of being represented by this wonderful office and their attorneys! They were very quick about answering any questions and most times explained things so well that my questions were answered before I got the chance to ask them. I had an amazing experience, everyone is kind and very attentive to your wants and needs. A case can be very stressful and they did a great job at keeping me sane and comfortable through the entire process. I recommend them 100%.

This in an incredibly professional and responsive firm. There was an ease about getting initial information, scheduling, and working with their talented team. While I found it to be true of everyone that I encountered here, it was Julian Burns King that really went above and beyond. Her expertise, experience, and knowledge of employment law and its many facets coupled with her empathy and compassion for her clients, is truly one of a kind. I would absolutely recommend King & Siegel to anyone in need of legal advice or representation.

Julian & Elliot are very good lawyers and I am glad I trusted them with my case. When I hired attorneys, I didn't know what to look for, but I am glad I found them. They were always attentive to my case and I never felt lost even though I did not have any prior experience with litigation. Ultimately, they got a result I was happy with and I am so glad I had them to help me put this experience behind me. You would be lucky to have them in your corner.

Retaliation

Retaliation occurs when your employer takes negative action against you for doing something you are legally allowed to do. Laws like the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) prohibit retaliation against employees. You may have a wrongful termination claim if you were fired for:

  • Reporting or refusing to participate in illegal conduct at work,
  • Helping with an investigation of harassment or other illegal conduct, 
  • Exercising rights like using sick leave,
  • Filing for workers’ compensation benefits,
  • Taking time to vote or serve on a jury, or
  • Reporting safety violations.

By recognizing the signs of retaliation, you can protect your rights and hold your employer accountable for their actions. If you are not sure if your specific situation falls under retaliation, it’s essential to seek advice from a wrongful termination attorney who works in the employment law area.  

Violation of an Employment Contract

Most employees are “at will,” meaning that your employer can fire you for any legal reason. However, if you have an employment contract, you could have a claim for wrongful termination if your employer violates the terms of the contract by firing you.

This can include situations where your employer fails to give proper notice or follow a disciplinary process. Additionally, if the contract states performance or misconduct standards, firing you outside those standards may constitute a breach. 

As an employee, you have a right to enforce the terms of your employment contract and seek remedy for wrongful termination if your employer violates their obligations. Visiting with a lawyer about your situation can help you better understand the terms of your employment contract and if your termination violated any of those terms.

How a Long Beach Wrongful Termination Lawyer Can Help

If you believe you’ve been wrongfully terminated, it’s important to get legal advice as soon as possible. A Long Beach wrongful termination lawyer can help you understand your rights and determine whether you have a case. Here’s how they can assist you:

  • Legal expertise. An experienced employment law attorney knows employment laws and can determine how they apply to your situation. They can look at the details of your case and advise on how to move forward.
  • Investigation. Your lawyer will look into why you got fired, gathering evidence to support your claim. They may look at your work contracts, records, and messages from your employer. 
  • Negotiation. Your lawyer can represent you during negotiations with your employer. They can work to get a fair deal for you and help ensure your interests are well-represented.
  • Litigation. If negotiation doesn’t work, your lawyer can file a lawsuit against your former employer and argue for you in court. They will present evidence and defend your rights. 

Getting help is important if you feel like you’ve been unfairly fired from your job. Our attorneys can guide you through what to do next. They’ll look into your case, gather evidence, and talk to your employer to try to work things out. If needed, they can take your case to court and fight for your rights.
