Wrongful Termination

California Wrongful Termination Lawyers

As an employment at will state, California allows employers to terminate employees at any time, with or without cause. That does not mean, however, that there is no such thing as an illegal termination in California.

The law provides certain protections against terminations for discriminatory or retaliatory reasons. If you were fired without cause or targeted for termination, you should have your case reviewed by an experienced California employment law lawyer who can help you understand your rights and protect your interests.

Fighting For The Rights Of California Employees

At Garay Law, we represent employees across the state in a broad range of wrongful termination claims. We have experience representing employees at all levels across all industries, and we have a particularly strong reputation for our representation of technology workers. We conduct a complete investigation into the reasons for your termination and build the strongest possible case in pursuit of a positive outcome on your behalf.

Our wrongful termination attorneys have experience with cases involving all types of illegal firings, including:

  • Discriminatory termination based on national origin, race, disability, gender, age or sexual orientation
  • Retaliatory termination based on an employee's refusal to partake in illegal activity
  • Retaliatory termination after an employee files a workers' compensation claim or takes leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Wrongful terminations under the guise of layoffs
  • Wrongful terminations due to personality conflicts, poor performance reviews and/or timing of bonuses

No matter what the circumstances surrounding your termination may be, it is important that you seek the advice of an attorney before you sign a severance agreement or any other agreement involving the termination of your employment. In addition, be very careful with the information you post online, including social media sites and other forums. Statements, photos and associations have the potential to hurt your case in the long run.

Contact our office to discuss your wrongful termination claim with one of our lawyers. We are available during our regular business hours of 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment evenings and weekends. You can reach us by phone at (949) 208-3400.


After having successfully handled my case, I’ve referred several friends and colleagues to Mr. Garay. He has come through and gotten their cases settled favorably every time. My reputation, both personal and professional, is very important to me. I won’t make a referral to people I know and work with unless that company has my complete confidence and trust. Mr. Garay and his associates continuously meet my high standards and expectations in getting the job done, that’s why I will continue to recommend him to my colleagues and associates.
