The Laws against Wrongful Termination

As an employee, you should have a general understanding of the different laws that protect you from unfair treatment in the workplace. There are many laws that establish your different rights in the workplace. Without a doubt, it might be difficult to gain a thorough understanding of all the laws that protect you as an employer. However, you should be familiar with at least the following two state and federal laws:

  • The Fair Employment and Housing Act
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act

    These laws make it unlawful for your employer to terminate you on the basis of protected personal characteristics. If you believe you have been a victim of wrongful termination, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Our lawyers will provide you with all the information that you need to understand the laws mentioned above as well as all other employment laws that protect you from wrongful termination. Do not hesitate to contact our firm today.

    The EEOC and DFEH – Taking Action against Your Employer

    What could you do if your employer fired you for unlawful reasons? What are your rights? Do you have the right to take action against your employer? Without a doubt, you have the right to take action against your employer. Specifically, you have the right to pursue action through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Department of Fail Employment and Housing (DFEH). The EEOC and the DFEH are employment agencies on different levels of government that are dedicated to protecting employees from mistreatment. The EEOC is a federal employment agency that enforces all employment laws on the federal level. The EEOC also handles employment claims when claims are brought forward by victimized employees. The DFEH is a Californian state employment agency that enforces all state laws and also handles employment claims when they arise. Whether you pursue a charge for wrongful termination through the EEOC or DFEH, you can be certain that the agency will investigate your claim and take action against your employer if found necessary. Although you have the right to take action against your employer, you must act promptly to ensure that you do not lose your rights – you must pursue a charge through the EEOC within 300 days of your termination and through the DFEH within 1 year. If you would like to learn more about the EEOC, the DFEH, and your right to take action against your employer, do not hesitate to contact our law firm today.

    Do You have the Right to Sue Your Employer?

    As mentioned above, you have the right to pursue a charge through the EEOC or the DFEH, but do you also have the right to sue your employer? Although you could pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer, you must first be awarded the right to sue from either the EEOC or the DFEH. What does this mean? Before being able to pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer, you must pursue your charge through the EEOC or the DFEH. After these agencies investigate your claim, they will automatically award you the right to sue. If the investigation process is delayed for whatever reason, the EEOC and DFEH are likely to grant you the right to sue upon your request. After receiving the right to sue, you will have a short length of time to pursue your claim against your employer. If the EEOC granted you the right to sue, you will only have 90 days to file your civil lawsuit. If the DFEH granted you the right to sue, you will have 1 year to file your civil lawsuit. If you would like to learn more about your right to file a civil lawsuit against your employer, do not hesitate to contact our law firm at your earliest convenience.

    Recovering Compensation for Your Wrongful Termination

    If you were wrongfully terminated, could you recover compensation? Do you have the right to recover compensation after being wrongfully terminated? Depending on the specific details of your wrongful termination case, you might be eligible to be compensated after reaching a successful outcome to your claim. Although all wrongful termination claims are different, wrongfully terminated employees are sometimes eligible to recover the following types of compensation:

    • Lost wages: compensation for all the income that was lost due to the wrongful termination.
    • Lost benefits: compensation for all the work-benefits that were lost due to the wrongful termination.
    • Pain and suffering: compensation for all the mental and emotional distress caused by the wrongful termination.
    • Punitive damage: compensation awarded as a form of punishment to the employer.
