Is Termination Ever Legal?
Employers can usually fire their employees at any time, given that their employment is at-will. All employees must remember the following: terminations are lawful as long as the reason behind the decision to terminate the employee is solely based on the employee’s work performance. If the decision to terminate the employee is based on discriminatory reasons, the termination is no longer legal. For more information about termination and how to identify whether it is lawful, do not hesitate to seek legal assistance as soon as possible.
What is Wrongful Termination?
Do you believe that you were wrongfully terminated? Was your termination motivated by discriminatory reasons, such as your age, race, gender, or sexual orientation? Was your termination a form of retaliation for trying to exercise or exercising your rights as an employee? Based on both federal and state employment law, there are certain protected personal characteristics. The following characteristics are protected by federal or state employment laws (sometimes protected by both):
- Race and color
- Ancestry and national origin
- Age (when over 40)
- Disability (both mental and physical)
- Sex and gender (including pregnancy and other characteristics relevant to pregnancy)
- Sexual orientation
- Gender identity and expression
- Medical condition
- Genetic information
- Marital status
- Military status (and veteran status)
Was your termination based on any of the protected characteristics listed above? Was your termination retaliatory in any way after you exercised your basic employment rights? If UCLA asked you to quit because you were pregnant, you were targeted based on a protected characteristic. If your boss terminated you because of the color of your skin, or any other protected characteristic listed above, you were wrongfully terminated and you have the right to take action against UCLA.
Pursuing a Claim with the EEOC or DFEH
If UCLA harasses you and retaliates against you in the form of termination, you likely have grounds to file a claim. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) are federal and state employment agencies that enforce employment laws on their respective levels. Since the EEOC and DFEH protect different personal characteristics, it is essential that victimized employees have a thorough understanding of the agencies and whether they could pursue charges with them. For instance, if your termination was based on your sexual orientation, you could not pursue a claim with the EEOC because the EEOC does not protect that characteristic; rather, you could pursue a claim with the DFEH because sexual orientation is protected by state law. Regardless of the employment agency that handles your claim, your claim will be investigated; after the investigation is complete, the appropriate agency will decide whether to take action against the employer. If you would like to learn more about the EEOC, the DFEH and your right to pursue a wrongful termination claim, do not hesitate to contact our law firm at your earliest convenience. Whether you are in need of a UCLA harassment lawyer or a lawyer experienced in any other type of discrimination, you could be certain that our wrongful termination attorneys are ready to handle your claim against UCLA.
