In San Diego, losing your job can be a life-altering experience, particularly in the current economic climate. The law firm of Goldfaden Benson cares deeply about defending the rights of employees who have faced wrongful termination, retaliation, and whistleblower issues.

Understanding Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired for reasons that are illegal or violate public policy. This could include termination due to discrimination, retaliation for reporting misconduct, or as a consequence of whistleblowing activities. In these cases, the law is on your side.

Seeking Legal Help

If you believe you’ve been wrongfully terminated, it’s crucial to consult a local employment lawyer promptly. Statutes of limitations mean you have limited time to file a claim. Goldfaden Benson offers free consultations to evaluate your case and advise on the best course of action.

Proving Wrongful Termination

To win a wrongful termination case, evidence is key. This can include written documents, performance reports, witness testimonies, and any other relevant information. Gathering evidence promptly is vital, as employers may attempt to erase or cover up proof of wrongdoing.

Compensation for Wrongful Termination

A wrongful termination lawsuit can recover lost wages, benefits, and compensation for emotional distress. In extreme cases, punitive damages may also be awarded. The goal is to “make you whole” as if the wrongful termination never happened.

Examples of Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination can take many forms, including being fired for refusing to break the law, due to discrimination or harassment, or for whistleblowing. It’s important to understand that termination under such circumstances is unlawful.

California's Strong Employee Protections

California laws offer extensive protections to employees, often exceeding federal standards. The [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)]( oversees federal employee protection laws, while state-specific laws are enforced by agencies like the California Labor and Workforce Development Agency (LWDA).

Retaliation and Whistleblower Protections

Retaliation in the workplace, a form of wrongful termination, occurs when an employer punishes an employee for engaging in legally protected activities. Whistleblower laws protect employees who report illegal activities or unsafe conditions.
