The employment law offices of Sullivan, Workman & Dee receive a number of calls every day from people who have lost their jobs and who believe that they have been unfairly fired. A natural and immediate reaction to file a complaint needs to be balanced with noting that California is an ‘at-will’ state for employment.
State and federal employment laws protect employees from illegal employment discrimination and wrongful termination. We can help if:
What Sort of Options Do Wrongfully Terminated Employees Have?
As an employee, victims of wrongful termination have a number of options. The first is to file a complaint with an appropriate government agency like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or your particular state’s similar government agency. With detailed investigation and the application of state law, an employee can also have recourse during a wrongful termination lawsuit.
You can have the right to recover your lost wages, any emotional distress, as well as attorneys’ fees and punitive damages. We can help protect your rights and also can recover the damages that you deserve.
This means that, while you may be responsible for payment of court costs and the costs of appraisers and other experts, you don’t pay attorney’s fees unless we win. Contingency fees, and responsibility for payment of court costs and expert costs, are negotiable and are not set by law.
Our experienced litigators and negotiators will either take your case to trial, if your boss will not settle, or help you negotiate a fair settlement (ninety percent of all court cases settle before trial).
