High Quality Lawyers in Los Angeles, CA Strategize Constructive Termination Claims
Protecting employees from illegal employment practices
When the workplace becomes truly intolerable for you, you have options. At the Los Angeles firm of The Ruttenberg Law Firm, PC, we represent employees who face such extreme adverse working conditions that they feel they have no other option but to resign. With early, aggressive intervention, we use our finely honed skills and experience to bring relief to clients experiencing inappropriate conduct on the job. We also guide clients through their “voluntary” resignation, so valuable evidence is preserved. We seek relief through constructive termination claims.
“Voluntary” resignation based on intolerable working conditions
In certain cases, employees may resign and pursue a claim for constructive termination. To validate a claim of constructive termination, an employee must produce certain evidence, such as:
- Employee was subjected to intolerable working conditions that were unusually or repeatedly offensive
- Employer intentionally created or knowingly permitted these conditions
- A reasonable person in the same situation would have had no reasonable alternative but to resign
- The employee resigned because of these working conditions and was thus harmed
At The Ruttenberg Law Firm, PC, we help clients whose “voluntary” resignation was based on intolerable working conditions, including:
- Hostile work environment
- Quid pro quo or other form of sexual harassment
- Discrimination based on gender, age, race or other protected status
- Retaliation by employer
It’s important to contact a Los Angeles attorney before you resign
When your workplace becomes unbearable, you may be tempted to quit. But it is not a good idea to resign before discussing your case with an attorney. Constructive discharge is very difficult to prove. A court must find that a reasonable person in your same situation would have had no reasonable alternative but to resign.
At The Ruttenberg Law Firm, PC, we analyze the circumstances of your case and protect your employment rights. We help bring harassment, discrimination, retaliatory actions and other intolerable working conditions to an end through swift, aggressive representation. We allow you to continue working without these adverse circumstances. With clear evidence that resignation is your only choice, we address any possible employer deficiencies — such as defects in reporting. We skillfully guide you through the steps of your voluntary resignation and subsequent legal claim.
