Were you recently wrongfully terminated from your job for one reason or another? If so, Meenoo Chahbazi would like to hear from you. As a lawyer who specializes in tackling wrongful termination cases for clients in the San Francisco Bay and Los Angeles areas, Meenoo Chahbazi is passionate about fighting for her clients so they get the justice they deserve. But what constitutes a wrongful termination?
What Is a Wrongful Termination?
Wrongful termination is when an employee is fired in an illegal manner, such as when the termination violates a state or federal law. For example, firing an employee because they are pregnant or because of their religious beliefs is a violation of federal civil rights laws and would constitute a wrongful termination. When this happens, the employee is entitled to legal action.
Finding the Right Lawyer
If you’re serious about filing a wrongful termination lawsuit against your employer, it’s important to have a lawyer on your side who understands the rules of the game and has an impeccable track record. Fortunately, Meenoo Chahbazi has both. Couple her experience with the fact that wrongful termination laws in the state of California are relatively strict, and you’re sure to have a strong case for justice. In fact, California has the strongest wrongful termination laws in the country, and Meenoo Chahbazi knows just how to wield the laws to her advantage. As an added bonus, she handles all types of wrongful terminations cases stemming from a variety of different types of discrimination, including the following:
- Disability Discrimination: Believe it or not, disability discrimination is very common and often results in employees losing their jobs. Like other types of discrimination, disability discrimination is not legal as long as the disabled employee can perform their essential job functions either with or without reasonable accommodations.
- Harassment: No one should have to deal with any type of harassment while they are working. Unfortunately, it happens all the time, and it can create a hostile work environment. Far too often, employees end up being fired if they speak up about the harassment.
- Leaves of Absence: Whether an employee takes a leave of absence for the birth of a child or to care for a family member, most leaves of absence are protected under laws such as FMLA, PDL, CFRA, and others. However, it’s not uncommon for employees to be terminated for going on leave and exercising their rights.
- Retaliation: If you spoke up about harassment, discrimination, or unlawful practices at your place of employment and were retaliated against by your employer by being terminated, you may be able to sue for wrongful termination.
These are only a few examples of ways employees can be wrongfully terminated. Wrongful termination is never right and can have lasting implications for terminated employees, especially when it comes to their finances, as they no longer have a source of income.
