AGGRESSIVE & COMPREHENSIVE REPRESENTATION HANDLING RETALIATION CLAIMS Every employee deserves to work in a safe and productive environment. But when a worker speaks up against an employer that engages in unethical or illegal business practices, they should never have to worry about retaliation. Unfortunately, it happens all the time throughout Southern California. Most of these incidents go unreported because many employees feel powerless and never take action. My name is Jeffrey Rager and I am a Los Angeles retaliation attorney. Intimidation tactics by an employer are never acceptable. California labor laws prohibit employers from terminating employees who make a complaint about harassment or discrimination. The attorneys at Rager & Yoon – Employment Lawyers utilize an aggressive and comprehensive approach to help protect the rights of each client.
What Is Wrongful Discharge?
Just because California is an “at-will” state does not mean that employers are free to fire people for any reason whatsoever. There are numerous reasons why a person may lose their job, but there are several ways in which a termination may be considered “wrongful.” In legal terms, wrongful termination refers to a situation where an employer fires or lays off an employee in a way that breaches the employee’s legal rights. Some of the most common cases that we handle at Rager & Yoon – Employment Lawyers include discrimination, harassment, and retaliation cases.
You can count on our wrongful termination attorneys to take the time to thoroughly investigate your case.
