The Customer Service and responsiveness provided by them throughout the entire process was awesome. From day 1 thru the end I was always well informed and
kept up to date on the status of my case. I would definitely recommend and use them again if needed.
From day 1 received professional care from this outstanding law firm... I was guided and referred to the best doctors and treatment centers, and small details like transportation, medications and appointments were taken care of. They helped me reach a substantial settlement, and I would advise all my friends and family to reach out to them…

How Long do you Have to File a Wrongful Termination Claim?
The applicable laws governing a wrongful termination claim can vary, but employees generally must first file a charge with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission within 180 days of their wrongful termination. If pursuing a claim with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing, the charge must be filed within one year of the adverse employment action.
You may be entitled to compensation for the following:
- Lost Wages
- Lost Benefits
- Diminished Earning Capacity
- Pain and Suffering
- Punitive Damages
Is it Hard for a Lawyer to Prove Wrongful Termination?
Wrongful termination can sometimes be hard to prove, but getting the compensation you deserve is worth it. That is why it is so important to seek legal advice and guidance from an experienced employment and wrongful termination lawyer. Our team of wrongful termination lawyers in California utilizes an aggressive and comprehensive approach.
What Does California Employment Law Protect You Against?
A California Wrongful Termination Lawyer knows and understands the law surrounding your unlawful termination, or other protected workers right. Under California employment law, it is illegal for an employer to fire an employee or make any other employment decisions (such as being passed over for a promotion) for the following reasons:
- Discriminatory reasons based on race, sex, or religion
- Reasons that violate an employment contract
- Reasons that are in revenge for an employee exercising certain legal rights
In short, these laws place important limits on an employer’s ability to terminate employees. An employee fired for reasons that violate these laws may be entitled to a wrongful termination claim for lost wages, benefits, and more. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated by your employer in California, contact Wilshire Law Firm today to discuss your case with a knowledgeable wrongful termination lawyer. Our lawyers are experienced and equipped to handle your wrongful termination claim.
Wrongful Termination & Discrimination Claims in California
Workplace discrimination and wrongful termination are huge problems in California. An experienced California wrongful termination lawyer will identify practices that are normalized in the workplace, but in reality are discriminatory. Although illegal, discrimination in the workplace happens often and many employees don’t know the extent of their rights. Fortunately, there are statutes in place that protect employees like you from wrongful termination and give those who are unjustly fired a way to get justice. Under California employment law, it is unlawful for an employer to fire an employee for discriminatory reasons or make any employment decision on the basis of one or more personality traits, known as “protected characteristics.”
What is Considered a Protected Characteristic Under California Law?
- Race, color, national origin, or ancestry
- Physical disability, mental disability, or other medical condition
- Genetic information
- Marital status
- Sex, gender, gender identity or gender expression
- Pregnancy or childbirth
- Age (for employees over the age of 40)
- Sexual orientation
- Military or veteran status
If you believe you experienced an unfair dismissal because of your membership in one or more of these protected categories, you may have a wrongful termination claim against your employer. Consult one of the experienced Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyer at Wilshire Law Firm today to discuss your possible case.
