What Laws Prohibit Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful termination occurs when an employer decides to fire an employee based on illegal reasons – reasons that infringe employment laws and employee rights. There are many laws that prohibit wrongful termination and the general mistreatment of employees in the workplace. As an employee, you should be familiar with at least the two following laws: the Fair Employment and Housing Act (state law) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (federal law). In addition to these laws, there are many laws that offer different protections to you as an employee. You must simply remain aware of your rights in the workplace – and your right to take action against your employer if he or she infringes on your rights and violates the law doing so.

How Can the EEOC and DFEH Help Wrongfully Terminated Employees?

What can you do after being wrongfully terminated from your Thousand Oaks workplace? All employees have the right to take action against their employers and file charges through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH), for example. The EEOC is a federal employment agency, while the DFEH is a state employment agency (in the state of California). Both of these agencies enforce employment laws on their respective level. When an employer violates an employment law by wrongfully terminating an employee, for example, employees can bring forth claims through the EEOC or DFEH (depending on the details of the specific situation). The agencies then begin investigating the claim and reach a decision, which might result in holding the employer accountable for his or her action. If you would like to learn more about the EEOC, the DFEH, and how these agencies are relevant to your wrongful termination claim, do not hesitate to contact our law firm as soon as possible.

Do You Have the Right to Sue?

As mentioned above, you have the right to pursue a charge for wrongful termination through the EEOC and DFEH. However, you might be interested in pursuing a civil lawsuit against your employer for your wrongful termination. Although you have the right to sue your employer directly, you must first be given the right to sue from either employment agency – the EEOC or the DFEH. How can you receive the right to sue from one of these employment agencies? After completing the investigation surrounding your claim, they will automatically grant you the right to sue. However, you do not have to wait for them to finish handling your claim. You could directly request the right to sue at any time. Once you have been granted the right to sue, you can pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer for your wrongful termination with the assistance of a wrongful termination attorney in Thousand Oaks. For more information about your right to sue your employer, do not hesitate to contact the experts at California Labor Law Employment Attorneys Group.
