Wrongful termination is a phrase almost every employer and employee knows. What is a wrongful termination? What should you do if you experience what you believe is a wrongful termination?
Here, Adishian Law Group, P.C. founder and California Attorney Chris Adishian explains what to do if you believe you are about to be, or have been, wrongfully terminated.
If you’ve been wrongfully terminated, and if you had the opportunity, the first thing you should do is take notes, and detailed notes, of your meetings during your termination session. That could be usually with HR or with HR and your manager. If you didn’t have a chance to take notes, and you’ve already been terminated, that’s fine. The next thing you should do is make sure you don’t sign any settlement agreement or severance agreement or any paperwork without talking with an attorney first. And then the last thing you should do before calling us, is make a detailed chronology of key events, witnesses, and timeline from the date of your recruitment, through your on boarding, your employment, all the way to the termination. Once you have that together, give us a call and we’ll set up a meeting for you with one of our attorneys. You can reach us at (310) 726 0888 or (415) 955 0888 or (650) 646 4022.
