Making Employment Law Protections Work for You
You told your boss the company shouldn’t hire undocumented workers. You stood up for a co-worker who was being harassed. You reported discrimination in your workplace. You filed a claim for unpaid overtime. If you lost your job after reporting unlawful activity, or after being injured at work, the law may have been broken.
If you were wrongfully terminated in violation of a public policy that protects employees, you may have a cause of action. Talk to a lawyer to understand your situation.
At the Law Offices of Gene J. Goldsman in Santa Ana, we want to hear your story. If you were fired and you believe that discrimination or retaliation played a part, we can help. We will listen. We will help you understand your legal options for pursuing justice. We will fight for you. Contact us today for a free consultation.
Before You Blow The Whistle, Know Your Rights
State and federal law provide specific “whistleblower protections” for employees who report illegal activity in the workplace or who testify to what they have witnessed. Some employers rely on an implicit (or explicit) threat of retaliation to keep victims and witnesses silent. Don’t let them get away with it. You have rights. You need a lawyer who will protect you from wrongful termination and fight for justice if it occurs.
In our experience, some of the best results in these cases come when our clients contact us before they have been fired. If you have suffered sexual harassment or discrimination — or are considering acting as a witness in an employment law claim — our attorneys can help protect you from retaliation and wrongful termination. Once your employer knows you are represented by a well-established law firm with a proven record of success in these cases, the threats should cease.
Whether you are trying to protect your job or get justice after a wrongful termination, you can get the strength and experience of a law firm that has been fighting for the rights of employees for over 30 years on your side.
