California has protections in place for workers to guard against many kinds of mistreatment in the workplace. If you have been, or suspect you have been, a victim of workplace discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, or underpayment, call a Labor & Employment Attorney today. The sooner you review your case with an expert in workplace law, the sooner you can begin to recover from the damage done to you.
Your recovery in your employment law case could take the form of compensatory damages for both your tangible losses (lost wages and benefits, job searching and retraining costs, etc.) and intangible losses (mental anguish, loss of professional reputation, etc.), on top of your attorney’s fees. In some cases, employers whose actions are found to have been reckless or malicious can be forced to pay punitive damages to their wronged employee.
The amount of damages you could receive depends on the unique circumstances of your case, though there is no cap on damages in California employment lawsuits. Some plaintiffs have secured hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Harassment, Discrimination, and Wrongful Termination
Being harassed or discriminated against in the workplace is illegal, per the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). Discrimination often is based on someone’s national origin, race, religion, pregnancy, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender, or age. If you are a member of a protected or disadvantaged group, you may be eligible to file a claim here in Beverly Hills, CA.
Navigating the legal system to report unacceptable workplace practices or behavior can be difficult. If you’ve been fired unfairly, hiring a wrongful termination lawyer can be the first step in regaining what has been taken away from you. Aside from reinstatement to your previous position, a wrongful termination lawsuit brings you the possibility of receiving lost wages, emotional reimbursement, counseling fees, and other forms of compensation, depending on your unique situation.
