What is Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful termination occurs when an employer fires an employee for a reason that is not directly related to the job. Rather, wrongful termination occurs when an employer bases an employment decision (i.e. the decision to fire an employee) on something considered discriminatory. For example, all of the following could be considered wrongful termination:

  • Termination from a position because the employer believes the employee is too old (40 or older).
  • Termination from a position because the employer has views people from the employee’s race unfavorably.
  • Termination from a position because the employer views the decision to start a family and take leaver from work negatively.
  • Termination from a position because the employer does not agree with the employees sexual orientation.

If your current situation resonates with any of the brief examples mentioned above, you might have been wrongfully terminated.

What Laws Protect Employees from Wrongful Termination?

Without a doubt, there are many laws that protect you and all other employees from wrongful termination. These laws apply under certain circumstances, allowing you to take action against your employer if these laws are infringed. In California, employees are protected by both federal and state laws.

Consider the following laws that protect you as an employee on the federal level:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (prohibits discrimination and employment decisions based on race, color, religion, sex, and national origin.
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (prohibits discrimination and employment decisions based on a person’s disabilities)
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (prohibits discrimination and employment decisions based on a person’s age when 40 or older)

Both the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act are amendments to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act – ensuring that the Civil Rights Act is more inclusive.

On the state level (specifically in California), employees are protected by the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). FEHA prohibits discrimination and employment decisions based on color, race, religion, gender, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, and pregnancy, among other personal characteristics.

What do these laws mean for you as an employee? These laws protect you and other employees from being subject to discrimination or unfair employment decisions based on any protected personal characteristics. If you would like to learn more about the different laws that protect employees from wrongful termination, do not hesitate to contact our law firm as soon as possible.

Pursuing Charges with the EEOC

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is an employment agency that enforces federal employment laws. If you were wrongfully terminated based on your race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disabilities, you could pursue an employment charge with the EEOC. Before pursuing a charge with the EEOC, you have to ensure that your workplace meets the specific guidelines that make employers subject to the EEOC (i.e. having a specific number of employees). To learn more about whether you have the right to pursue a charge with the EEOC, do not hesitate to contact our firm today for more information.

California and the DFEH

The Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) is an employment agency that enforces state employment laws. If you were wrongfully terminated based on color, race, religion, gender, national origin, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, pregnancy, or other personal characteristics protected by FEHA, you could pursue a claim with he DFEH. Like with the EEOC, you have to ensure that your employer is subject to the laws enforced by the DFEH (i.e. having the minimum required employees). In most cases, employees decide the pursue claims with the DFEH when the specific type of discrimination they suffered when they were terminated is not covered by the EEOC but is effectively covered by the DFEH. To learn more about whether you could pursue an employment charge with eh DFEH, do not hesitate to contact our law firm as soon as possible. The employment attorneys at California Labor Law Employment Attorneys Group will provide you with all the information that you need to learn more about your right to pursue a claim.

Do I Have a Case for Wrongful Termination?

Do you believe that you have a case for wrongful termination? If you were terminated based on discriminatory reasoning, such as your age, religion, race, sex, or any other personal characteristic protected by either federal or state law, you likely have a case for wrongful termination. Because wrongful termination is a serious issue, you must file claims with the appropriate employment agency (either the EEOC or DFEH). However, you have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer. Before you pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer, you must first receive a right-to-sue letter from the employment agency with which you initially filed your wrongful termination claim. After receiving the right-to-sue letter, you will have a short length of time to file your lawsuit; therefore, you must seek legal assistance as soon as possible.
