Our jobs are critically important to us. A job can provide financial security, a feeling of accomplishment, but most importantly of course, our jobs allow us to support ourselves and our families. Losing your job can be a devastating blow, both financially and emotionally – suddenly, the financial security and sense of well-being you have worked for is gone. A sense of outrage is more than appropriate if you have been terminated for an unlawful reason.
Perhaps you have been terminated despite a strong good work history and positive performance evaluations. Regardless of the excuses that your employer may offer, if you suspect that your termination might be wrongful, you need experienced legal counsel to determine whether your employer has violated California employment laws. The Law Offices of Corbett H. Williams can help.
Even if your termination itself was not unlawful, it may still be worthwhile to contact an employment lawyer. An experienced attorney can frequently identify claims you may not be aware of, including for unpaid overtime, unreimbursed expenses (i.e., auto, cellphone and home internet), incorrect wage statements and missed meal and rest periods, among many others. Frequently employees who are paid a salary are misclassified and intitled to overtime.
Our firm has successfully represented many wrongfully terminated employees in the Orange County, California, area and throughout Southern California. We understand the methods many employers use when they attempt to disguise wrongful terminations and the legal loopholes they often use to justify wrongful terminations. If you believe you have valid grounds to suspect wrongful termination, our team will help you determine your best available options for legal recourse and guide you through the legal proceedings you face.
