California firefighter awarded millions for wrongful termination

Safety on the job is important for every worker, but some fields are inherently prone to tragedy if safety is overlooked even for a moment. In the field of firefighting, it's extremely critical that all established safety procedures are adhered to, for the sake of both the firefighters and those they are trying to save. Unfortunately, sometimes doing the right thing, or reporting the wrong thing, can result in illegal employer retaliation.

Employment agencies and illegal employment discrimination

Looking for a job is tough, especially in today's ever-changing economic landscape. Many times, people in the Los Angeles area will utilize employment agencies, temp firms, industry staffing firms and the like in order to get their foot in the door of a profession. These agencies provide invaluable services, but occasionally some may engage in employment discrimination.

Employer retaliation: A toxic form of wrongful termination

We are often taught that doing the right thing will get us rewarded. Most of the time, this is true and those who exhibit honesty, integrity and care in their work will reap the rewards of such virtues over time. However, in some employment situations doing the right thing, or simply standing up for one's rights, can get a person in trouble. The topic of employer retaliation is one that a Los Angeles wrongful termination attorney can help with.

What is "quid pro quo" sexual harassment in California?

Anyone who has worked in a hostile environment understands the severe strain and distress that hostility can place on a worker. Even if a worker is trying as hard as they can to function in such an environment, the overall atmosphere can eventually force them to realize they can't take it anymore. Those who report things like sexual harassment can face additional hostility, though, from employers and human resource officers who don't want any problems or negative publicity. A skilled wrongful termination attorney can protect harassed employees' rights in difficult situations like these.

Wrongful termination and at-will employment law

Countless members of the Los Angeles workforce have encountered the term "at-will employment" during their careers. This extremely common phrase can affect almost anyone working in California, from executive professionals to entry-level hourly workers. It is sometimes erroneously assumed that the term means a worker has no recourse when it comes to wrongful termination. This is not true, as there are numerous laws and regulations regarding the reasons for hiring and firing an employee in California.
