Losing a job suddenly can be stressful. In these times of unprecedented economic upheaval, many folks in the Glendale, Burbank, and Los Angeles communities are concerned about their finances and never ending inflation. Losing a job in these uncertain economic times can be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s back. The loss of a job can be that much worse when the termination is unwarranted or, even worse, unlawful. Terminated employees in Glendale, Burbank, and Los Angeles can contact a wrongful dismissal lawyer at Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C. for a complimentary case evaluation. When representing employees, the Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C. works on a contingency basis. This means that the firm charges a fee equal to a percentage of what is recovered. Between the complimentary case evaluation and the contingency fee representation, clients do not have to worry about paying legal fees unless and until results are delivered.
Wrongful Dismissal – Not What You Think
Some employers in Glendale, Burbank, and Los Angeles believe being fired for any reason is okay because California is an at-will employment state. However, there are some very important limitations on the at will doctrine.
For example, a termination of employment which violates an important public policy may give rise a wrongful termination for violation of public policy. These can include:
• Termination in violation of the FEHA’s antidiscrimination provision. For example, discrimination based on sex, gender, race, religion, or pregnancy.
• Termination in retaliation to the employee’s activity in a protected activity. For example, whistleblowing or complaining about unsafe working conditions.
The wrongful dismissal lawyers at Akopyan Law Firm, A.P.C. can quickly determine if the facts and circumstances of a particular termination violate the law, and help the employee seek justice.
