What should I do if I have been fired for reporting harassment or discrimination at work?
In California, it is illegal for an employer to fire an employee for reporting workplace harassment or discrimination. Workers have the right to report about unlawful conduct at work without facing any retaliation such as termination, pay cuts, unfavorable work hours or other adverse employment actions.
Reporting workplace misconduct is considered a protected activity under the law. If you have been fired for reporting harassment or discrimination, you may have a wrongful termination case against your employer.
Discuss your situation with an experienced employment lawyer to find out your legal options. Erlich Law Firm can help you understand your rights and determine if you are eligible to pursue compensation through a wrongful termination lawsuit.
