Sexual harassment in the workplace is, unfortunately, far more pervasive in today’s day and age than any of us would like to think.

Although California is an employment-at-will state, meaning employers can hire or fire employers for any reason or no reason at all, employers are still prohibited from firing employees due to a protected class or out of retaliation. Therefore, if you believe you were fired due to discriminatory reasons or as an act of retaliation for reporting discrimination/wrongdoing in the workplace, you likely have a valid wrongful termination claim. Our dedicated California employment lawyers can help you pursue such a claim and get you compensated for the damages you’ve incurred.
Did you report unethical behavior in the workplace, such as speaking with a higher-up about being discriminated against, only to get fired, or otherwise punished for simply exercising your rights? If so, there’s a strong chance you’ll have a valid retaliation claim. Retaliation can come in a variety of forms, including wrongful termination, being demoted, being excluded from company activities, and more. Stansbury Brown Law, PC is on your side.

If your employer has wrongfully denied you your rightful pay, such as overtime pay, or refused to pay you the minimum wage, you should strongly consider reaching out to a competent California employment lawyer who is experienced in handling wage and hour disputes. Fortunately, you are in the right place.
