If an employee tries to assert his or her rights under the federal or state anti-discrimination laws and the employer fires them because of that, then that is illegal and is a grounds for wrongful termination. If the underlying case for discrimination doesn’t work in favor of the employee, then this may help build a successful retaliation claim. An example of this would be if an employer fired a woman employee for complaining that she isn’t getting equal pay as her male counterparts, then she may have a grounds for a retaliation lawsuit. This is even if the employer proves that the pay gap was not based on the sex of the employee.
If you’re fired, it should be on the basis of not doing your job correction, not in response to your retaliation. Wrongful termination lawyer in Los Angeles at the Rager Law Firm has years of experience and will fight for your rights. Contact them for a free initial consultation at 310-527-6994.
