Have you been laid off recently? Have you lost your job, or been denied a promotion? The truth is that you may be a victim of wrongful termination, without even knowing it. For you, it seems like everything is done “by the book” when in reality, you are being a victim.
But how do you know when a termination is legal and when it is not? What are the indicators that something is “strange” with your termination? Here are the most common situations when you should file for wrongful termination.
You are Being Retaliated Against
If you witnessed something illegal in your workplace and decided to report it, or if you “blew the whistle”, the chances are that you have become (or will be) unemployed. Situations like these usually end up with a termination; however, there are cases where certain individuals were denied their promotions, their overtime work or transfer to another division.

Harassment And Discrimination At The Workplace
If your employer or any of the coworkers harassed or discriminated you, for whatever reasons, you have every right and should immediately call Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Once you learn your rights, you will be able to stand up to those who discriminated or mistreated you. If you end up losing your job for those reasons, you can file a wrongful termination claim.
The most common types of workplace discrimination are based on:
- Country of origin
- Marital status
- Political view
- Skin color
Besides discrimination, if you become a victim of sexual or physical or psychological harassment, you have the same rights – call one of our Los Angeles Wrongful Termination Attorneys and receive their help in filing a wrongful termination claim.
