Wrongful Termination in CA
Were You Fired after an On-the-Job Injury? Call (888) 740-6434.
Workplace injuries give the injured employee the right to file a claim for
workers’ compensation. Despite California laws which clearly lay out this right, many employers
choose to retaliate against employees who do file a workers’ comp
claim. This retaliation can take place in many forms, including:
- Demoting the employee
- Discriminating against the employee
- Firing the employee altogether
While all forms of retaliation are illegal, the last course of action is
naturally the most severe. If you were terminated after filing a workers’
compensation claim, we at Pacific Workers’ Compensation Law Center

Take Action with an Oakland Workers’ Comp Lawyer
Simply put, state laws prohibit employers from punishing their workers
for suffering an injury on the job or filing a claim to recover compensation.
Despite these laws, employers throughout California persist in doing exactly
that, compounding the suffering that the injured worker must face.
It is also important to note that some employers try to create reasons
for terminating injured workers. Unfair job performance reviews or unfounded
criticism are often used to cover up illegal behavior, leading the employee
to wonder if they deserved to be fired. Whatever the details of your case,
the importance of securing legal representation cannot be overstressed.
We refuse to let employers get away with unlawful behavior and can carefully
assess your circumstances to execute the best course of action. Employers
found guilty of wrongful termination may face statutory penalties, be
forced to compensate or reinstate the employee, and even get hit with
punitive damages. Our goal at Pacific Workers’ Compensation Law
Center is simple: achieve a swift and effective resolution to your case
that comprehensively meets your needs.
We are eager to begin pursuing that goal on your behalf.
