Wrongful Termination FAQ:
Q: My employer did not follow its own policies when I was terminated. Do I have a case?
A: Failure to follow an employer’s own policy may be evidence of a wrongful termination, but employers are not legally bound by their own policies. An unfair termination is not necessarily a wrongful termination case. Call us right away so we can evaluate your employment situation.
Q: I was offered a severance agreement. Should I sign it?
A: Before signing a severance agreement which will prevent you from filing a lawsuit against your employer, there are various considerations to take into account – including whether or not you have a case that is worth more than the agreement. Since each case is different, contact one of our experienced professionals to discuss what steps you should take.
Q: My employer will not give me my final paycheck unless I sign some paperwork. Can they do that?
A: Generally, you are not required to sign anything to receive your final paycheck – in fact, you probably shouldn’t sign anything whatsoever after you have been notified of your involuntary termination! Contact us for your free consultation.
Q: I was just fired for something I didn’t do! Is this a wrongful termination case?
A: Typically, California employers are allowed to terminate an “at-will” employee for any reason – even if that reason is a terrible business decision or an honest mistake. However, they are not allowed to terminate you for an illegal reason.
