If you believe you’ve been fired or had an adverse action taken against you because you spoke up for yourself on the job, you may have been treated unlawfully by your employer. Depending on your job, your employer may be able to fire you for various reasons, but they can’t fire you for filing a harassment or discrimination claim. They can’t treat you unfairly because of your gender or age. If you believe this has happened to you, you may have a possible legal action against your employer.
At the Law Offices of Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., we can take on any workplace issue that calls into question whether your rights have been violated. Reach out to us as soon as possible — we’ll listen to your side of the story and let you know the possible course of action. This first consultation is free of charge. We believe that once you sit with us, you’ll leave with the impression that no other Employment Law attorneys will give you the same deep concern and care for you and your case.
Questions to Ask to Find Out if You Were Treated Illegally by Your Employer
Your case doesn’t begin at the moment your employer ended your tenure; it likely started at a previous point. That information helps us determine the kind of issues you might be facing. Did you at some point file a claim of harassment or suggest another employee was creating a hostile work environment? Were you injured on the job and filed a claim for Workers’ Compensation? Did you recently request a raise or promotion, but were denied without good reason? These occurrences may indicate that your employer took action against you for reasons that are illegal under California and federal law. They may have retaliated against you for standing up for your rights or the rights of others.
It’s often difficult to get to the bottom of these issues. It may take some investigative work and questioning under oath to find out what your employer’s intentions were when they let you go. This work requires a knowledgeable legal team that can handle complex legal issues and is committed to seeing people receive justice. That describes our attitude at the Law Offices of Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C.
