San Bernardino Wrongful Termination Attorneys
Have you recently been:
Threatened for Whistleblowing?
Transferred or Demoted?
Have you recently had:
Your Hours or Wages Reduced?
What should you do?
There are many unacceptable reasons employers give for firing an employee. If this has just happened to you, emotions will probably be running high. It is important that you remain calm, and avoid venting to co-workers as you leave the premises. Once you are in the privacy of your home, collect your thoughts, and begin to write things down. Create a timeline of events.
You will need to pull together all the evidence you can. Organize whatever you have in your possession (i.e., computer files, documents, letters, memorandums, or other items that pertain to the situation). It is important that you be as thorough as you can with the details, and evidence. The more information you can have to support your side of the story, the better.
If you have been laid off, or lost your job recently, due to bias, prejudice, or in retaliation for reporting workplace sexual harassment or illegal conduct by your employer, you can take legal action against your employer.
If you have been fired for reporting an unsafe work environment, California laws are on your side. It is illegal for an employer to punish you for asserting your rights in the workplace.
If you were fired after taking family or medical leave, it may be considered a wrongful termination, giving you grounds for legal action.

California is an “at-will” employment state, and it can be difficult to prove your claim. This is why you need a highly-skilled and trusted Wrongful Termination Lawyer working on your behalf.
If you signed an employment contract that clearly states you are not an at-will employee, this may help your position. If you are suddenly terminated, without good cause, and you have an employment contract, you may have grounds for an action against your former employer. Let our experienced Employment Law Attorneys at SANFORD A. KASSEL, A Professional Law Corporation, review your employment contract. We will determine whether or not an employment breach has occurred, and what legal remedies are available.
The California Constitution, and California Statute protects at-will employees. State and Federal Laws prohibit discrimination based upon:

There are also laws in the State of California that protect at-will employees, including:
- Whistleblowing (reporting perceived unlawful conduct)
- Social Media Access Policy (protection from having to divulge personal login information)
Legal Remedies That May be Available to You
Damages for wrongful termination can include back pay, a promotion, reinstatement, front pay, compensatory damages, reasonable accommodations, injunctive relief (forcing the employer to do or stop doing something), punitive damages, and attorney’s fees for your legal costs.
