No one wants to experience the feeling of being fired. While your emotions may be raw, it is important that you document why you were fired, because it’s possible that you may have been wrongfully terminated. Thousands of people are wrongfully terminated every year.

The majority of workers in The United States are at-will employees, meaning that their employers can fire them at any time and for any reason. While you’ll likely fall into that category, be aware that there are clauses in place to protect people from being fired illegally. If you feel that you have been wrongfully terminated, it may be a good idea to contact a wrongful termination attorney. With that being said, here are some common signs to look for that clearly show that you were a victim of wrongful termination.

There Is Proof Of Discrimination
There are anti-discrimination laws that protect you from being fired. Employers are not allowed to fire an employee based on their race, gender, or sexual orientation, among other things. In some states, employers cannot fire an employee based on their marital status. If you believe that you were discriminated against, contact a Los Angeles employment attorney. Keep in mind that there are time limits that apply to discrimination claims. If you move forward with the lawsuit, your employer must be able to prove that your termination was related to the business. Your employer might be asked to show documentation, including write ups and performance reviews to show that your firing was justified.

Your Employer Did Not Honor Your Contract
When you accept a job offer, you’ll often be asked to sign a contract. Read over your contract carefully to see if it includes a specific time frame that you will be employed. If you are terminated before the end of that time period, you may have a case to pursue a wrongful termination lawsuit. Your contract should explain the process of how the company handles terminations. If your employer doesn’t follow the process according to what is stated in the contract, contact a wrongful termination lawyer Los Angeles to assess your options.

Your Character Was Defamed
Defamation of Character occurs when your reputation is compromised due to someone intentionally spreading untrue information about you. In order to pursue a wrongful termination lawsuit, you must be able to prove that your employer knowingly made incorrect statements about you. Contact a Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyer as soon as possible.
