A lot of the time, employees who were wrongfully fired don’t know if they were wrongfully terminated, or discriminated. Is it possible to be both?
In the States, it is clearly stated that every type of discrimination against the employees is prohibited. Also, terminating an employee wrongfully is against the law.
In case you were terminated, it is best that you seek legal help. The Wrongful termination attorneys in Los Angeles will help you understand the difference between wrongful termination and discrimination, and see if you were either discriminated at work, or terminated for wrong reasons.
Understand why you were fired
Once you are fired, you should be given proper reasons behind your termination. What did your employer state as his reasons? Did he even give you a reason for your termination? Perhaps he offended you in any way?
Understanding your termination will help you understand your options.
- If you were not given any reason behind your termination, you employer may have wrongfully terminated you. In this case, you may have a legal case at hand, and may be eligible to file a lawsuit against wrongful termination.
- If you were provided with reasons behind your termination, and if those reasons seem discriminatory in any way, you may have a discrimination charge at hand.
Either way, you should consult with our attorneys and have them provide you with a free case review. Maybe you missed something or neglected an essential fact. We will help you understand what you are going through, and help you file a legal lawsuit if you have the base for it.
