wrongful termination

As a worker, you have rights

One of them is that you can’t be fired for just any reason. Yes, the California Labor Code says that this is an “At-Will” Employment state, meaning that an employee can be fired at any time for any reason, or even no reason at all. ??However, if the reason is illegal, then you deserve compensation. That’s where we come in. As a wrongful termination attorney in Long Beach and the surrounding area, Belal Hamideh and associates have been able to help clients to get what they deserve when they’ve been fired illegally.

When You’ve Been Terminated from your Job Illegally

It’s natural to think that your boss can fire you for any reason whatsoever. However, that’s just not the case. There are certain reasons that they cannot fire you for legally. We understand that it might feel like it’s impossible to fight back against this, but it isn’t. Over the years, we’ve represented clients from all different kinds of industries. In that time, we’ve helped protect their rights as well as to get them what they deserve.

Illegal Reasons for Being Fired

For example, you can’t be terminated in retaliation for complaining of discrimination or harassment. Maybe your boss has made unwanted advances or harassed you sexually. They can’t legally fire you for rebuffing them or pointing that out. Should something like that occur, the best thing you can do is to reach out to our firm immediately so that we can get right to work on your case.

In fact, you can’t legally be terminated for any discriminatory reason. “Discriminatory reason” may have a wider definition than you might have otherwise thought. You can’t be fired for your age, or your gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and so forth. Additionally, your employer legally cannot let you go for whistleblowing, either.

When people hear the term “whistleblowing,” they might tend to think of famous cases from the news, a government employee exposing secrets. That’s one kind of whistleblower, but a whistleblower could also be a factory worker who exposes unsafe work practices, or the teacher who raises awareness about workplace health within the school, and so forth. If you were fired for being a whistleblower, we can help.

Often, when an employee is fired for one of these illegal reasons, the employer typically doesn’t out and out say that explicitly. However, if you feel that you were fired from your job illegally, we can do everything in our power to make sure that justice is done.

Taking Your Side in the Dispute

Of course, even if your employer hasn’t fired you for one of the above reasons, you may still qualify for a wrongful termination case. If you have an existing employment contract or even, in some cases, an implied one, we can help you there as well. It’s normal to feel powerless when you’ve been wrongfully terminated. You’re one person, let go from the business you’ve put so much into for reasons that were no real fault of your own. That’s how they want you to feel. They want you to think that there’s nothing you can do, that you just have to take it. The people in your life who depend on you, who are by your side, want you to stand up for yourself and do what’s right. Losing income from being wrongfully terminated can be disastrous. We can take your case and walk you through the entire process.

Straight Talk on Complicated Law

As you might imagine, these laws can be quite complex. Wrongful termination can be murky, and the other side is going to do everything that they can to make it even harder to know the truth. When you contact us, we’ll sit down with you and go through everything. Your company, your work history, what happened, and so forth. Over the years, we’ve seen many of these kinds of cases.
