Wrongful Termination, Tortious Discharge or Retaliation

A claim for wrongful discharge, tortious discharge or retaliation can arise under many different circumstances. Whether an employee resides in California, Nevada or Utah, he/she may be entitled to damages if the employer terminated his/her employment in violation of public policy.

For example, an employer will be deemed to have violated the law if it terminated an employee due to race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, marital status, sex, gender, age, or sexual orientation.

Other examples of tortious discharge include terminations related to the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), or the Pregnancy Discrimination Act. There are both federal and state laws that employee entitle an employee to invoke protections afforded by statute. State claims that exist, however, are determined on the state in which you reside or are employed.

Retaliation in the workplace

If an employer takes adverse action against an employee because he/she participated in a protected activity, that may constitute retaliation. Laws against retaliation are designed to prevent employers from engaging in coercion, intimidation, threats, harassment, or interference with protected rights.

For example, if an employee has reported any type of discrimination, unsafe working conditions, illegal or unethical practices, and the employer subjected the employee to an adverse employment action, the employee could be deemed a whistleblower and entitled to the protections afforded by law.

Harassment and Discrimination

California, Nevada, Utah and the Federal Government have enacted laws to protect you from certain types of harassing conduct at work. There are many ways that illegal harassment may present itself in the work place. It could be a slur or inappropriate jokes that demonstrate hostility towards race, sex, gender, age, nationality, medical condition, disability, religion, or sexual orientation.

Oftentimes this form of harassment presents itself as sexual comments, flirtation, inappropriate text messages, or touching. There are numerous forms of harassment that occur every day in the workplace that violate the law. If harassment and/or discrimination has occurred, an employee may be entitled to damages.

Meal and Rest Break Violations

Most state laws require that an employer provide an uninterrupted meal break after working a certain number of hours or working for a continuous period of 8 hours in a day.
