Wrongful Termination Attorney in Los Angeles
Offering the guidance you need after a wrongful discharge from work
Because California provides for employment on an at-will basis, it is not always easy to prove that a termination is unlawful or against public policy. From our Los Angeles office, the lawyers of The Ruttenberg Law Firm, PC handle the complexities of wrongful termination claims, and know how to protect the rights of victims. We have insight into the employer’s viewpoint because one of our practiced attorneys represents employers. For this reason, we can anticipate employer actions and adapt our representation to your unique case.
With a high level of experience in all aspects of dispute resolution — negotiating or mediating settlements and aggressively litigating employment cases in court — our attorneys provide efficient, quality representation to employees who are wrongfully terminated. Reasons for termination can include:
- Discrimination from an employer or supervisor
- Retaliation by an employer or supervisor
- Retaliation for reporting sexual harassment or other unlawful practice
- Assertion of rights
Wrongful termination based on discrimination in Los Angeles and throughout the state
Under federal and California state law, an employer may not terminate an employee or threaten termination because of race, religion, sex, age, disability or other protected status. For example, an employer may not assume a policy of terminating all women older than 50. For a full list of protected classes, please see our page on discrimination.
