The DFEH and the EEOC

Santa Maria Wrongful Termination AttorneysWhat can you do after being wrongfully terminated by your employer? Unfortunately, many people are unaware of their right to take action against their employer. On both the state and federal levels, however, there are employment agencies enforcing laws and dedicated to protecting employees. On the state level, Californian employees are protected by the Department of Fair Housing and Employment (DFEH). The DFEH is the state employment agency responsible for overseeing and enforcing all employment laws – as well as handling all employment claims when they arise. On the federal level, employees in California and throughout the country are protected by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC is the federal employment agency that enforces all employment laws. The EEOC also handles all employment claims that arise. If you were wrongfully terminated, you have the right to pursue a claim through the DFEH or EEOC. With what agency should you pursue your wrongful termination charge? The answer to that question depends on the specific details of your claim. For more information about pursuing a charge with the DFEH or EEOC, do not hesitate to contact our law firm today.

The Right to Sue Your Employer for Wrongful Termination

As discussed above, you have the right to take action against your employer through the DFEH and the EEOC, but you also have the right to file a civil lawsuit for wrongful termination. Although you might assume that you automatically have the right to file a civil lawsuit against your employer, you cannot automatically sue. All employment claims must go through the DFEH or the EEOC. Therefore, these employment agencies must grant claimants the right to sue before claimants can file civil lawsuits against their employers. You were granted the right to sue; now, what? After receiving the right to sue, you have the right to pursue a civil lawsuit – with the assistance of a wrongful termination attorney. For more information about your right to file a civil lawsuit after being wrongfully terminated, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance as soon as possible.

Understanding the Timelines that Apply to Your Claim

Unfortunately, many employees who have been wrongfully terminated lose their right to take action against their employer – because they fail to act within a specific length of time. All wrongful termination claims are subject to very strict deadlines that vary depending on the action that you are pursuing. Are you pursuing a claim with the EEOC? If so, you will have 300 days to file a wrongful termination charge through the EEOC. If you are granted the right to sue from the EEOC, you will have 90 days to file your civil lawsuit against your employer. Are you pursuing a claim with the DFEH? If so, you will have 1 year to file a wrongful termination charge through the DFEH. If you are granted the right to sue from the DFEH, you will have 1 year to file your civil lawsuit against the employer that wrongfully terminated you. Why is understanding the timeline that applies to your claim so important? If you fail to take action against your employer within the time allowed, you will lose your right to sue and your right to receive compensation – do not hesitate to take action against the employer that wrongfully terminated you today.

Recovering Compensation for Wrongful Termination

If you file a wrongful termination claim, you might expect to recover compensation for lost wages; you might also expect to be reinstated to your position. Although reinstatement does not usually work out, wrongfully terminated employees are usually eligible to recover lost wages in addition to many other forms of compensation.

How much compensation could you receive? What type of compensation could you recover? All wrongful termination claims are different; however, claims often result in some of the following types of compensation:

  • Lost income (compensation for all wages lost because of the termination, including back pay and front pay)
  • Lost benefits (compensation for all the benefits lost due to the termination, including health insurance, life insurance, etc.)
  • Pain and suffering (compensation for mental and emotional suffering caused by the termination, including fear, anxiety, uncertainty, and depression, for example).
  • Punitive damages (compensation awarded to punish the defendant)

Because the compensation available for recovery depends on the specific details of your claim, it is essential that you seek legal assistance as soon as possible. For more information about the compensation available for your wrongful termination claim, do not hesitate to contact our Santa Maria wrongful termination attorneys as soon as possible. Our wrongful termination attorneys are ready to evaluate your claim and fight for your right to recover the highest amount of compensation available for recovery.
