Wrongful Termination Lawyer


Hire a Wrongful Termination Attorney in Orange County


A job termination is wrongful if it is done because:

  1. the employee complained about illegal conduct of their employer;
  2. the employment termination is discriminatory;
  3. the employee is fired for refusing to perform an illegal act;
  4. the employee is fired in order to avoid paying them wages due;
  5. the employment termination was part of a scheme to defraud the employee. Another word for wrongful termination is whistleblower retaliation.

Employees have rights and we are here to protect your employee rights!
