Wrongful Termination Law

| Nov 10, 2012 | Firm News |

There are many labor laws protecting you from being wrongfully terminated.  Below is a compilation of a few…

The Bankruptcy Act prohibits an employer from terminating an employee because they have filed bankruptcy or have unpaid debts.

The Family and Medical Leave Act entitles qualified employees to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave to care for themselves or their families, due to medical issues without fear of being fired.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act, as well as Federal Occupational Safety and Environmental Laws have provisions that protect employees who have reported their employers to the authorities for fraud or health and safety violations from being retaliated against and fired.

Even if you are an employee-at-will if an employer violates the above public policies the termination may be illegal (for example, if an employer asks an employee to cover up a crime).

If you have been fired and you believe your employer is in violation of Federal Law or California state law, please give my office, The Law Office of Todd M. Friedman a call at (877) 449-8898.
