Wrongful Termination & Discrimination Attorneys Providing Client-Focused Representation in Southern California

At Appleton Law Group, our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of employment law issues, including claims for wrongful termination, retaliation, discrimination and harassment, wage and hour law violations, and contract issues.

The terms wrongful termination, unlawful termination and wrongful discharge are often used synonymously to refer to a legal cause of action, such as termination in violation of public policy. Generally, for an employee to bring a claim of wrongful termination under California employment law, the employer must have discharged the employee for an unlawful reason (for example, age or race) or in breach of a contract or agreement.

It is important to understand that many wrongful termination or discharge claims are the result of other issues, including harassment and discrimination. Workplace discrimination takes place when an employee is treated differently based on his or her status, such as race, age, gender, disability, pregnancy, or marital status. An employer unlawfully discriminates when an employer fails to promote, terminates employment, or fails to hire an individual because of his or her status. Similarly, harassment claims may be based on a variety of grounds, including race, national origin, age, marital status, and disability. Many people may not even know they have these claims, which is why it is essential to discuss your case with our Southern California discrimination lawyers.

At Appleton Law Group, our attorneys have successfully litigated wrongful termination and related claims, including:

  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Wage and hour law violations
  • Breach of contract
  • Infliction of emotional distress
  • Interference with contract/prospective economic advantage

If you are facing one of these issues, it is essential to contact experienced harassment attorneys serving Southern California to ensure your rights are protected.
