Default What to consider when filing a wrongful termination claim?

Much as you will get the assistance of a professional wrongful termination lawyer Orange County, you need to be acquainted with what to look at and for during this process. This will not only prepare you for the process but will also enable you to determine whether or not you have a case. The following should therefore be put into serious consideration:

i. Obligations of contracts

This is the easiest determinant of whether or not you have a case. If you have a signed contract, then both you and your employer are bound to the terms of the contract. If either of you goes against it, then the other has reason to file a formal complaint. Without a signed contract therefore, it is hard to prove that your employer has fired you wrongfully.

ii. Employment limits

This defines the fact that all employment is taken to be “at will” for both employer and employee. This then means that you can quit at any time, and your employer can end your employment at any point for any reason. The rubber meets the road where this end of employment is done either under coercion or if the employer fires the employee on the basis of discrimination or goes against your signed contract. If this happens, then you have a case.

iii. Retaliation

This defines a situation where the employee is fired on the basis of the fact that they either blew the whistle on the employer for illegal acts, or for refusing to do something that was against the law. Simply put, if you blow the whistle on your employer, or refuse to do something illegal for them, they should not fire you. You have legal rights that allow you a choice in both of these cases.
