Why You Need a Lawyer for Your Los Angeles Wrongful Termination Case

Wrongful termination claims in Los Angeles can be incredibly complicated, particularly when going up against a well-funded employer and their legal team. A skilled employment law attorney in LA will:
  • Have extensive knowledge of all state and federal regulations regarding wrongful termination claims. The laws that regulate wrongful termination are vast and seemingly contradictory at times, but a lawyer can delve through these statutes on your behalf and work with the correct agencies to ensure you are properly cared for.
  • Understand how to ensure your claim is filed on time with the appropriate agencies so it can move forward without hindrance. These claims have relatively quick reporting deadlines, and if they are not filed on time, you may not be able to recover the compensation you need.
  • Fully prepare your claim for negotiations with the other team, including getting the case ready for trial if that is what is necessary to ensure success. 

What is Wrongful Termination in Los Angeles?

Wrongful termination occurs anytime a worker is fired for an illegal reason. A termination can be illegal because it violates state or federal law, public policy, a contract agreement, or court findings. 

There are a multitude of reasons that could make a termination “wrongful,” many of which we will discuss below. 

If you think that you have lost your job wrongfully in Los Angeles, we encourage you to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible.

These claims have fairly strict reporting deadlines, and your attorney needs to get to work immediately.

How Wrongful Termination Claims Commonly Arise

As we mentioned at the beginning of this page, California is an at-will state concerning employment. This means a few things. First, employees are free to leave their job for any reason and at any time they choose.

Workers do not have to put in their two-week notice, and an employer cannot withhold payment for hours already performed if a person quits. 

However, being an at-will state also means that a person’s employment can be terminated by their employer for just about any reason. 

So long as the termination is not illegal based on law or policy, the worker will have no recourse when it comes to termination. What typically happens is that a wrongful termination revolves around another type of violation of employment law.
