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.

Wrongful Termination Attorney Los Angeles

State and federal employment laws protect employees from illegal employment discrimination and wrongful termination. We can help if:

  • your boss or company discriminates against you based on your race, age, religion or ethnicity,
    or if you are fired or demoted because of a disability or medical condition,
  • you are fired because you won’t work overtime without pay or you won’t lie or do something illegal for your boss or your company,
  • you are denied family leave, or
  • you and other employees have a class action claim against your employer or some other right to sue as a group.

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. A Wrongful Termination Attorney Los Angeles can help protect your rights and also can recover the damages that you deserve.
We often represent our employment clients on a contingency fee basis.

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).
