The rights of California employees in a wrongful termination suit

There are many perfectly legitimate reasons why a California employer might decide to fire or lay off an employee. However, it happens all too frequently that a worker ends up without a job for a reason that is legally unacceptable. When this happens, an employee might choose to file a wrongful termination lawsuit against the former employer, in the hopes of recouping financial losses he or she has likely suffered.

Our team at the Law Offices of Louis Spitters has a great deal of experience in litigating these types of cases. We work with our clients to figure out exactly what happened and determine the best path. We know that not every case is going to be the same and that certain employment factors will influence the outcome of a case. An "at will" employee is going to be subject to different parameters than one who was on contract. One who was fired over "whistleblowing" will have a different set of circumstances than one who experienced workplace harassment.

Each client has different needs and desires for the outcome of a wrongful termination lawsuit. This can influence what types of damages he or she might seek. In all cases, time is of the essence and is especially crucial in cases that involve a violation of one's civil rights. Some employees may get their jobs back, be compensated for lost wages and or see other forms of restitution.

There are other types of termination lawsuits. For a better understanding, you can visit our wrongful termination webpage. We here at the Law Offices of Louis Spitters are always willing to answer questions for California workers who may be uncertain of their rights.
