Representing California Employees In Employment Law Claims

From retaliation against whistleblowers to firing an employee who complains about sexual harassment, employment cases often come down to the victim’s word against the employer’s word. These can be hard cases to prove.

And yet, the wrongful termination attorneys at Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, have repeatedly brought such credibility and authority to our clients’ words that they prevailed in cases against Fortune 500 companies and major corporations in Los Angeles and throughout the region. Contact our law office to speak with a lawyer about your claim of wrongful termination.

In California and other states, employers can hire and fire at will. But they cannot fire people because they stood up for their rights if they were being mistreated because of discrimination or harassment in the workplace. Further, they cannot fire an employee whistleblower who reports fraud, illegal activities or safety violations to the government.

A History of Success in Wrongful Termination and Harassment Lawsuits

Our clients have triumphed over employers in the financial industry, in healthcare, in the automotive industry, in real estate and construction, in high tech companies and insurance companies for retaliation and wrongful firing due to:

  • Employee complaints of discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability
  • Employee complaints of harassment
  • Employee whistleblowing to expose employer wrongdoing
  • Contract disputes

Investigating Claims of Employer Misconduct and Wrongful Termination

Workplace lawsuits require thorough investigation and experience handling the administrative requirements unique to employment litigation. As one of California’s premier plaintiffs law firms, Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, has significant investigative resources it can put to work on your unfair termination case.

Bringing a Wrongful Termination Case to Trial

California employees are covered under all of the same federal anti-discrimination laws that protect workers around the nation, including the EEOC, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Family and the Medical Leave Act. But California workers are also protected under the Unruh Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).

Under the law, if you are terminated because you complained or tried to assert your rights to be free from unlawful discrimination or harassment, you must bring a claim to the Department of Fair Employment and Housing before you can proceed with a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Our lawyers bring many employment cases to trial, significantly more than other firms. Our reputation for being ready, willing and able to go to court is a distinct advantage. Injured employees often receive greater compensation, whether or not their case is ultimately tried, because employers and their counsel realize they face a relentless and highly-skilled opposition.

Compelling Presentation of Complex Evidence

For one client, an accountant in a health care company, we proved his charges of fraudulent behavior by his corporate superiors (whistleblowing) in order to gain support for his wrongful termination lawsuit. The jury agreed with our client and awarded him a $3 million verdict.

In this case, as in many wrongful termination lawsuits, we secured computer and forensic accounting evidence to support the client’s claims. Gathering this evidence is expensive, time consuming and highly technical. When presented in court, such evidence could appear tedious to a jury. But not in a trial conducted by GB&W.

We are innovative in our approach to gathering and presenting evidence. Our discrimination and harassment team has repeatedly and successfully transformed “dull” material into persuasive arguments that a jury can understand.
