Representing Employees In Wrongful Termination Claims
If you have been fired for exaggerated or baseless performance criticisms, your employer may be discriminating against you. Employers that discriminate on the basis of gender, religion, disability, race or ethnicity, often shield their discriminatory motivations by manufacturing or exaggerating performance deficiencies. You may also have a claim if your employer fired you in violation of your contract.
At Khatib Law, APC, I can help. I’m Mazen Khatib, an experienced employment attorney. I represent employees throughout Ontario, California, and surrounding areas who have been fired, laid off or let go for discriminatory or retaliatory reasons. You can count on me to be your voice and advocate.
Are You A Victim Of Wrongful Termination?
You can be a victim of wrongful termination without realizing it. Common grounds for wrongful termination claims include:
- Age discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Retaliation against you for taking legally protected actions
- Whistleblower retaliation
- Wage and hour disputes or unpaid overtime
- Pregnancy and maternity leave issues
- Sexual harassment or a hostile work environment
- Violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Breaches of an oral and written contract made between you and your employer
Additionally, your employer can’t fire you just because you have a different political view.
How Do You Handle Wrongful Termination?
I offer wrongful termination legal advice for those who need it. I will educate you on your rights and potential courses of action so you can decide how to move forward.
Generally, the first step is to contact your company’s human resources department. You might think after you’re terminated that you cannot contact HR. In fact, HR still has a duty to answer your questions about the termination process, including your benefits. They must also advise you of whether you can challenge the termination of your employment.
If HR doesn’t help, or if you have experienced discrimination or harassment that HR has failed to properly address, it’s time to get a lawyer. I can guide you, talk to your employer and work hard to get you your job back if that is the best outcome. I can also represent you in a lawsuit against your employer for wrongful termination, if appropriate.
The Experience And Resources To Fight For Your Rights
I will work hard to protect your rights and obtain a favorable outcome for you, whether that means job reinstatement, back pay, punitive damages, unemployment benefits and other compensation for your wrongful termination.
