Seasoned Employment Law Attorneys Serving Los Angeles
Were you were unfairly fired due to a sudden job dismissal with little or no explanation? A sudden, unjustified job dismissal does not automatically mean that you have grounds to file a wrongful termination claim against your employer. In California, employment is based on an “at will” basis which means that your employer has the right to fire you without any justifiable reason and without warning. This aligns with your right to quit your job at any time you wish. Only under certain circumstances are wrongful termination claims available to employees. At Berberian Ain, LLP, we can walk you through the legal basis of such claims and determine if you have a valid case.

The Bases for Wrongful Termination Claims
Unless you are protected by a written contract that protects your job status, you are likely an “at will” employee. Unlawful termination claims for such employees can only be based on workplace violations.
It must be determined and shown that you were dismissed based on one of the following:
- Discrimination against you based on your race, religion, sex or gender, age, national origin, color, or disability
- Retaliation against you by your employer for such activities as protesting or submitting complaints about unsafe work conditions, sexual harassment, and other employment law violations
- Retaliation against you by your employer for seeking workers’ compensation
- Retaliation against you by your employer for seeking family, maternity, or medical leave, for taking time off to vote or perform jury duty
Other wrongful termination claims may be based on breach of contract, public policy violations, retaliation for whistle-blowing, or breach of contract of good faith and fair dealings.
To understand if any of these conditions apply to your job dismissal, you will need to have your case reviewed by one of our wrongful termination lawyers. Should it be determined that your rights have been violated, we will fight vigorously on your behalf in seeking justice. Our employment law attorneys have an abundance of knowledge and legal skills available to manage all aspects of your claim from start to finish.
