Our Newport Beach wrongful termination lawyers are ready to work

When you go to work in California, you probably know that this is an “at-will” employment state. You may think that this gives an employer the right to hire and fire you for any reason at all. While this is generally true, we need you to understand that this does not give any employer the right to fire you for illegal reasons.

Newport Beach wrongful termination due to discrimination

You may have heard of the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. They are charged with ensuring that employers in this country abide by the law against workplace discrimination. Along with federal law, California has strong protections in place to shield workers from discrimination based on their:

  • Marital status
  • Race and color
  • Nationality
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity
  • Disability
  • Religion or creed
  • Age

More than 80,000 charges were brought by the EEOC for discrimination against people based on those items listed. Our Newport Beach wrongful termination attorney will stand up for you regardless of how you have been discriminated against.

Wrongful termination in Newport Beach due to retaliation

The EEOC is also tasked with holding employers accountable for retaliation against employees.

  • Nearly 40,000 charges of retaliation were brought during the latest reporting year.

It is illegal to fire an employee as retaliation for them:

  • complaining about workplace safety conditions
  • reporting harassment or discrimination
  • requesting their legal accommodations due to a disability
  • taking their allowable medical leave.

It is also illegal to retaliate against an employee who is a whistleblower. There are strong whistleblower protections in place at the state and federal levels to protect those who come forward about an employer’s fraudulent or illegal activities.


It’s uncommon for employers to openly admit when they are firing employees for illegal reasons. To protect themselves, employers will cite valid justifications for letting employees go. For example, although an employer’s true reason for firing you may be related to the fact that you recently filed a workplace discrimination complaint, it’s likely your employer will claim you’re being fired due to poor work performance or a similar factor. They’re not going to admit to breaking the law when letting you know you don’t have a job any longer.

In some instances, a worker may be able to identify signs indicating their employer has committed wrongful termination. Examples include:

  • Being fired shortly after blowing the whistle on wrongdoing in the workplace or cooperating with investigators
  • Being fired after a sudden life change, such as getting married, getting divorced, becoming pregnant, etc.
  • Being fired for seemingly no good reason after your employer learns about your religious views
  • Being fired after becoming disabled
  • Being fired after filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits
  • Losing your job after “coming out of the closet”
  • Being fired after using your time off
  • Losing your job after your employer learns you are romantically involved with or related to a somewhat well-known figure with certain political views your employer may disagree with
  • Being fired after requesting that an employer make accommodations for your disability

That’s not an exhaustive list. If you suspect you’re the victim of wrongful termination, but you’re not certain you have grounds to take legal action, review your case with a qualified professional. An expert at our Newport Beach wrongful termination firm will determine if you have a valid case.


Your odds of seeing that justice is served when filing a wrongful termination claim or lawsuit against a former employer may be greater than they would otherwise be if you hire a lawyer to manage your case. An experienced Newport Beach wrongful termination attorney can assist you by:

  • Conducting a thorough investigation to gather evidence showing an employer’s cited reason for firing you isn’t backed up by the facts
  • Requesting documents (such as copies of past performance reviews) that may strengthen your case
  • If necessary, interviewing coworkers and other “witnesses” whose testimony could prove valuable
  • Researching your employer’s history to determine if they’ve been guilty of wrongful termination in the past
  • Determining how much compensation you may deserve to receive based on the losses you’ve incurred as a result of wrongfully losing your job
  • Handling all administrative tasks your case may involve, such as filing paperwork by certain deadlines

Winning a wrongful termination case against a former employer naturally benefits you. However, it may also benefit both current and future employees of the company.

An employer who faces the consequences of wrongful termination is less likely to illegally fire employees again. Thus, with the help of a Newport Beach wrongful termination law firm, you can seek justice for yourself while also protecting others.
