Experienced Wrongful Termination Employer Defense Attorneys in California
At Pearlman, Brown & Wax, LLP, our skilled California wrongful termination defense attorneys for employers understand the financial and reputational harm these claims cause to companies of all sizes in varying industries.
Fortunately, many employers can benefit from proactive measures to protect against the risk of wrongful termination litigation. However, even the most strategic and measured approaches to preventing these claims may not keep employees from feeling wronged when terminated.
The difference is, unless the terminated employee has an employment agreement in place that specifies the terms of their employment, at-will employment relationships can be terminated by the employer for any reason or no reason at all, if the reason is lawful.
With over 50 skilled litigation specialists and support staff members, we plan each step of our clients’ wrongful termination defense strategies to ensure we are covering any overlapping issues that will complicate their businesses going forward.
Our law firm emphasizes education, counseling, and litigation support to employers, insurance carriers, and third-party administrators, which allows our clients to proactively operate ahead of the curve.
At Pearlman, Brown & Wax, we believe in the power of innovation, experience, and results.
Why Are California Companies Targeted in Wrongful Termination Claims?
Terminated employees are often slighted by the fact that their employment with a company — no matter how long or short-lived it may have been — has been terminated.
In short, no one likes getting fired. When employees are released, they may file a wrongful termination claim as an automatic reaction or after lamenting about all the potential shortcomings they identify with the company.
No matter the employee’s reason for filing a wrongful termination claim, it must allege a violation of state or federal law — including discrimination or retaliation based on race, gender, age, religious affiliation, national origin, or another protected class — or a breach of an implied or actual employment contract.
Our dedicated employer wrongful termination defense attorneys in California are skilled at getting baseless claims dismissed, negotiating timely and appropriate settlements, and engaging in courtroom litigation when necessary.
