Knowledgeable Legal Representation In Wrongful Termination Cases
Losing your job is never easy, but it is even more painful when this was the result of a wrongful termination. If you believe there has been a violation of your rights, you may be entitled to lost earnings and damages. The attorneys at Brenes Law Group, P.C., know what steps to take to maximize your recovery in wrongful termination cases.
Protecting Your Rights As An Employee
Employees have a number of rights that are unique under California law. For example, it is unlawful for an employer to fire an employee due to gender, pregnancy, age, race, national origin and/or disability.
Employees can take a medical leave, a pregnancy leave or request a reasonable accommodation for a disability without fear of losing their job. Also, it is unlawful to fire a whistleblower employee for no valid reason other than reporting unlawful, fraudulent, or unethical conduct at the workplace.
Unfortunately, it can be very difficult to prove that a wrongful termination took place. Employers are going to make it as difficult as possible for you to demonstrate that any termination was unlawful. For this reason, it is necessary to retain a lawyer with extensive knowledge of employment law. Such a lawyer will need to investigate your claims thoroughly, and understand how to demonstrate proof of wrongful termination in a court of law.
At Brenes Law Group, P.C., our attorneys have a reputation for providing quality representation in employment law cases. When working with you, we listen to your concerns and provide knowledge and guidance regarding your rights as an employee. We provide individual attention to every case.
