Wrongful Termination Attorney in Burbank
Find Out How You Can Fight Back in Los Angeles County
In California, most employment positions are considered to be "at-will." In other words, an employer may fire an employee for any reason or for no reason at all. However, an employer may not fire an employee for a discriminatory reason or for other reasons prohibited by state and federal laws. If an employer fires an employee illegally, it is considered wrongful termination and that employee may seek financial damages from the employer.

Situations Where an Employee May Be Unlawfully Terminated
There are a number of situations that may give rise to a wrongful termination claim:
- If an employee is the victim of discrimination and is fired for reporting the discrimination, or if the firing is the end result of discrimination, it may be possible to make a case for wrongful termination.
- If an employee is fired after reporting an illegal act undertaken by the employer or for engaging in other activities protected by whistleblower laws, it is likely wrongful termination.
- "Constructive discharge" can occur when an employee has no choice but to quit his or her job because the employer has made working conditions so intolerable that any reasonable person would have also quit if forced to face these conditions.
Because California is an at-will employment state, it can be difficult to prove cases of wrongful termination. That is why it is important to have a skilled legal advocate in your corner. At Limonjyan Law Group, we provide services in English, Spanish, Russian, and Armenian.
