How Do We Prove Wrongful Termination?
Our wrongful termination lawyers look for data revolving around statistical evidence, comparative evidence, or direct evidence.
- Direct evidence: This can be described as discriminatory comments made by a manager or your employer and is often the most persuasive for a wrongful termination case.
- Statistical evidence: To demonstrate wrongful termination based on statistical evidence your employer systematically discriminates against a particular protected category of people whether its race, religion, gender, national origin, age, sexual orientation, and more.
- Comparative evidence: Shows different rules and standards were applied for persons of a protected category group.
Under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), it is unlawful for an employer or manager to demote, suspend, wrongfully terminate, or harass any of its employees because their employee has lawfully engaged in protected activities. Retaliation by the employer is prohibited whether the employee is opposing harassment or discrimination directed against them or another employee.
It is also unlawful for a California employer to retaliate against an employee for refusing to violate any law, for reporting the employer for violating any law, or for protesting conduct by the employer that is the subject of any state or federal statute, regulation, or constitutional provision.
