You have the right to good faith and fair treatment as an employee, which includes not being terminated without a valid reason. In California, you are entitled to address any allegations made against you in the workplace and explain your side of the story. You also have the legal right to be promptly paid for all work performed up until your discharge, and to have appropriate break periods and overtime compensation.
The law protects you from discrimination based on various factors such as race, religion, gender, and disability. You can also speak out against business practices you suspect to be in violation of the law, and it is within your rights as a whistleblower to complain to your managers about unsafe or unlawful conditions in the workplace without fear of retaliation.
If you experience wrongful termination, discrimination, or retaliation at work, our offices can provide you with personalized advice and guidance to address your situation.
