California Wrongful Termination Law Firm
Browne Labor Law is a California wrongful termination law firm. If an employer terminates an employee on the basis of the employee’s race, age, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, disability, or other protected class, it is likely that a wrongful termination occurred. Additionally, an employee generally cannot be terminated in retaliation for complaining about the employer’s illegal conduct. For example, a wrongful termination may have occurred if the employer fired an employee who complained about discrimination, harassment, or a wage and hour violation. Furthermore, the termination of whistleblower employees, or employees who have complained about safety in the workplace, may rise to the level of a wrongful termination. Terminating an employee because the employee filed a worker’s compensation claim is generally improper, as is terminating an employee because she exercised her medical and/or pregnancy leave rights. Browne Labor Law is a California wrongful termination law firm that advocates for employees who have been the victim of a wrongful termination.
A California Wrongful Termination Law Firm that understands the Employment “at-will” Doctrine
It is important to note that most California employment relationships are “at-will,” which means that the employer can terminate an employee for any or no reason at all. However, if the termination violates public policy, or in any other way violates state or federal law (many of which are mentioned on this page), then the employee may have a claim. In short, there are a myriad of ways for the employer to wrongfully terminate an “at-will” employee. Violation of a written or implied contract can also rise to the level of a wrongful termination.
A California Wrongful Termination Law Firm with a Unique Perspective into the Employment Relationship
Browne Labor Law’s founder previously worked for a wrongful termination law firm that predominantly represented employees; however, the attorneys at that law firm also represented a limited number of companies. That experience has allowed Browne Labor Law’s attorneys to gain a unique perspective into the thoughts and motivations of companies. Not surprisingly, some employers try to cover up a wrongful termination by blaming the termination on the employee’s work performance or because, “business is slow.” Unlike some other California wrongful termination lawyers, Browne Labor Law’s founding attorney has experience working for a law firm that defended wrongful termination lawsuits. As a result, Browne Labor Law’s lawyers — Mr. Browne and its of counsel attorney, Devin Coyle — are able to aggressively advocate for employees who have experience a wrongful termination.
