Wrongful Termination

San Jose, CA Wrongful Termination Attorney

In California, most employment is at-will, meaning an employee can be fired for cause — or for no reason at all. However, your employer cannot fire you if you refuse the employer’s instruction to break a law, or if you report or oppose an unlawful practice in the workplace.

At the Law Offices of Rutger Heymann, I will aggressively protect your rights if you have been wrongfully terminated. I have successfully represented employees who were wrongfully terminated for the following protected conduct:


Your Rights Under Federal and California State Law

If you have been fired or wrongfully terminated in the Bay area, it is important to know your rights and what the law says regarding your situation. At the Law Offices of Rutger Heymann, I represent employees' rights in cases of wrongful termination on the basis of discrimination, harassment and other violations of the law.

Wrongful Termination and Denial of Promotion

Corporations today have teams of lawyers guiding managers and human resources staff on how to terminate an employee or justify a denial for promotion. Frequently employers start a “paper trail” to support their claims. If a “paper trail” has been started, protect yourself by calling an attorney before you are fired. If you call me I will discuss ways to counter your employer's actions and guide you through the employment law maze.

Call Me First to Discuss your Wrongful Termination Options

If you were terminated or denied a promotion based on any of the above situations or harassed for opposing such conduct, you should contact a wrongful termination attorney to determine if your termination was illegal. Calling me first can provide you with legal advice that is in your best interest. From my office in San Jose, I help people throughout the Santa Clara Valley and San Francisco Bay area.
