Protecting Wrongfully Terminated Workers
At Gwilliam Ivary Chiosso Cavalli & Brewer, we understand the anxiety over the future, the anger and the humiliation that victims of wrongful termination are feeling when they walk through our doors. Most have lost more than just a paycheck. They have lost careers, sources of personal pride and, in some cases, the very center of their lives.
Since our law firm was established nearly 40 years ago in Oakland, California, we have handled numerous wrongful termination cases across the Bay Area and northern California. Our attorneys have successfully helped many individuals get their jobs back, recover financially and move forward with their lives.
If you have been fired as an act of discrimination or in retaliation for complaining about illegal activity, contact us for a free consultation. We will help you understand your legal options.
What Is Wrongful Termination?
California is an at-will employment state. This means that an employer may terminate an employee at any time, with or without cause. However, there are exceptions to this rule and wrongful termination laws exist.
An employer cannot fire an employee for specific illegal reasons, including:
- Discriminatory purpose, such as their age, race or religion
- Harassment, including sexual harassment by supervisors, managers or co-workers
- Retaliation for complaining of a hostile workplace involving sexual harassment or discrimination
Our employment law attorneys are prepared to investigate the circumstances of your termination and, if we accept your case, help you recover the compensation that you are entitled to. If you have been wrongfully terminated, you may be entitled to compensation for your lost wages and other damages.
Our Approach To Wrongful Termination
Our lawyers dedicate significant resources to winning every case we accept. Consequently, we limit our caseload and accept only those cases in which we strongly believe we can make a difference.
If we accept your case, we will assign a team that includes one of the firm's partners, an associate attorney, a paralegal and a legal assistant. This approach enables us to devote the necessary time and attention to case preparation and research. It also ensures that someone who is familiar with your case will almost always be available to respond to your needs and answer your questions.
