Experienced Los Angeles Wrongful Termination Lawyer Louis Benowitz

Most employees are employed "at will," meaning that an employer may fire an employee at his or her own discretion. Exceptions to this "at will" doctrine include:

  • Discrimination
  • Whistleblowing
  • Family and medical leave
  • Military service
  • Retaliation for complaints about an unsafe work environment, harassment or discrimination
  • Public policy violations
  • Privacy invasions
  • Employment contracts

Some employers who hope to avoid a wrongful termination lawsuit will torment their employees until they quit. These employers force employees to terminate themselves in order to avoid further distress in the workplace.

If the employer makes the work environment intolerable, the employee who is forced to quit may bring a lawsuit against his or her former employer for "constructive discharge" and seek the same remedies in court that are available to a wrongful termination plaintiff.

If you believe you have been victimized by a wrongful discharge, please feel free to contact the Law Offices of Louis Benowitz about your situation. Contact us by calling today, toll free — 800-533-2392. In most instances, Mr. Benowitz can take your case on a contingency fee basis, meaning that you will only have to pay attorney's fees and costs if your case is successful.
