San Diego Wrongful Termination Attorney

If you have lost a job, you know the uncertainty, the frustration, and the anxiety that accompanies it. That frustration is only compounded if you are certain you were wrongfully terminated. California is an at-will state, so either the employer or the employee ends their work relationship whenever they see fit.

How to Tell if You Were Wrongfully Terminated

There are various reasons that you can lose your job that is considered unlawful. Being fired from a job due to discrimination for the following reasons is considered wrongful termination:

  • Race
  • Gender
  • Nationality
  • Religious affiliation
  • Disability
  • Age
  • Medical condition
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy


Another reason for wrongful termination is retaliation. If you call out your employer for discrimination or other behaviors, your employer might retaliate. They might demote you or overlook you, or make you work the worst shifts.

If you are experiencing retaliation, contact a wrongful termination lawyer in San Diego to see you through the process. They will advise you of the laws that protect your rights, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the protections available through the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).
