This post concludes and recaps our series on the handling of wrongful termination cases in Santa Ana and elsewhere in Orange County, California. We decided to address this topic due to the fact that many workers have mistaken beliefs when it comes to these types of cases. The goal of our recent posts has been to provide information which will help people to better understand their rights and to help them make an informed decision when selecting an employment law attorney. If you feel your rights have been violated then contact our office today to speak with a lawyer.
We have addressed several topics in our recent posts. Issues which we have analyzed include:
- Understanding what constitutes “wrongful termination
- Filing a wrongful termination case in Orange County
- Wrongful termination cases based on race discrimination
- Wrongful termination cases based on employer retaliation
These are important topics for multiple reasons. First, many make the mistake of believing that a firing is illegal simply because they did not deserve to lose their job. Unfortunately, our system does not guarantee anyone employment and it is not illegal for a company to fire you for reasons which may simply seem unfair or inconvenient. It is illegal, however, for a company to fire you for reasons which are protected under the law. Second, one must realize that they cannot simply sue their employer after they have been fired. There is an administrative process which they must go through and failing to do so can result in a case being dismissed. Finally, one can bring a case for racial discrimination or employer retaliation even if the company did not explicitly say these are the reasons for which they were being fired.
We cannot stress enough the fact that Orange County residents should contact an attorney as soon as possible after losing their job. You will only have a limited amount of time in which you can bring a claim and if you miss this window then you will not be permitted to file a case. Our Santa Ana lawyers take such matters very seriously. Glen Duvel has devoted his career to defending the rights of others and is ready to assist you. Contact us today.
