Wrongful Termination Attorneys In Inglewood

Being terminated from a job can be incredibly stressful, and it can be even more devastating if you’ve been fired because you believe it is unlawful. If you believe this has happened to you, knowing your rights is essential to figuring out what to do next. If you’ve been wrongfully terminated or forced to quit due to an intolerable work environment, please contact us to schedule a free consultation with one of our Inglewood wrongful termination lawyers. California is an “at-will” employment state, meaning employers can dismiss employees at any time, without warning, for any reason that is not prohibited by law. This means you can be fired for other reasons than because you aren’t doing well. No matter how long you’ve been at a company and how valuable you believe you are, your job is almost always at risk if you are an at-will employee in California.

The law still allows employees to file wrongful termination claims when unlawful reasons motivate their discharge. Certain characteristics are protected by California and/or federal law, including the following:

Constructive Termination Can Give Rise to Wrongful Termination Claims

When working conditions become so severe and pervasive that no reasonable person could be expected to continue working and an employee is forced to quit, this is known as “constructive termination,” which can give rise to a wrongful termination claim. Wrongful termination could still be claimed when the employee has resigned due to intolerable working conditions. For example, an employee being harassed because of their gender, sexual orientation, race, or disability may have no choice but to quit, particularly when the employer knows about the harassment and allows it to continue. In such a case, the employee’s “voluntary” separation can be treated in the same manner as involuntary termination to claim wrongful termination.

How Do You Prove Constructive Termination?

In order to prove construction termination, an employee must show the following:
It’s not enough to show that you simply didn’t like your job or your environment was unpleasant. To prove construction termination, your workplace environment must have been so unpleasant that any reasonable person in your position would have felt like they needed to quit as well. Additionally, your employer must have known how you felt about your workplace environment.
