Wrongful Termination Claims: What To Know If You Lost Your Job

Losing your job is a major setback and a tremendous upheaval for you and your family. You may be facing financial and emotional struggles. You may feel like your career has been derailed.

If your termination was for unlawful reasons, you may have grounds for a wrongful termination claim. Attorney Jasmin Gill and her team at J. Gill Law Group, P.C., can advise you of your options and help you pursue justice. For years, they have been powerful advocates for employees throughout California who were wronged. They are committed to standing up for the underdogs, holding employers accountable and making a difference.

When Is It Unlawful For An Employer To Terminate Your Employment?

The general rule in California is that employment is “at will,” meaning you or your employer can end the relationship at any time, for almost any reason. However, employers cannot fire you for discriminatory reasons and cannot terminate you in retaliation for exercising your rights or for reporting unlawful or unethical conduct in the workplace. They also cannot violate the terms of your employment contract, if you have one.

What Can You Recover Financially Through A Wrongful Termination Claim?

If you are successful, you can get compensation for:

  • Your lost wages and benefits
  • Your emotional distress
  • Damage to your reputation
  • Coverage of your legal fees and costs, including attorney fees and costs

You may also be entitled to punitive damages – that is, an additional financial award designed to punish your employer for wrongdoing and set an example so that other employers do not do the same thing.
