Although most employees, except for those under a contract, are considered at-will, there are specific laws that protect even at-will employees from being wrongfully terminated. At-will employment means that an employee is free to leave at any time, and can be terminated at any time unless it is for an illegal reason of purpose. The Velasquez Law Firm can assist you in determining whether you have been terminated for an illegal reason. If you believe you have been terminated illegally or as a result of retaliation, please contact Mr. Velasquez, a qualified San Diego wrongful termination attorney.
While no one likes to lose their job, those who have been wrongfully terminated often feel especially victimized and taken advantage of by their former employer. If you feel you have been unlawfully terminated, there are various legal options available to you. Our wrongful termination San Diego lawyer is here to educate you on your legal rights and help you obtain justice and monetary compensation for the damages you and your loved ones have suffered as a result of unlawful termination.
Common examples of wrongful termination include job loss resulting from:
- Reporting Sexual harassment
- Violation of an employment contract
- Discrimination (Based on race, gender, age, religion, politics, etc.)
- Retaliation for reporting illegal activity
- Termination while on approved leave of absence
If you have been terminated while under a contract, which guarantees employment for a specified amount of time, you may also be entitled to recover monetary damages as a result of breach of contract/unlawful termination. At the Velasquez Law Firm, we represent wrongfully terminated contract employees and can help you determine whether there is cause for legal action. In fact, often, even a verbal contract may offer you certain protection under wrongful termination law.
