Wrongful Discharge Attorneys In San Diego

State and federal laws prohibit employers from terminating employees in retaliation for making a discrimination complaint, for complaining of unlawful conduct in the workplace, for refusing to participate in illegal activities and for a range of additional reasons. Many wrongful termination claims involve the following issues:

  • Discrimination, including discrimination on the basis of age (40 or over), sex, physical or mental disability, race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, medical condition, use of lawful leave rights, military or reserve status, sexual orientation, retaliation for engaging in EEO activities, etc.
  • Sexual harassment
  • Whistleblowing

Employees may think they were let go for one reason, but may not realize that there was an underlying purpose that was not in compliance with the law or other governing policies and procedures.

Terminated federal employees have the right to have their cases reviewed by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and/or the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), depending on the circumstances of the termination.
