It’s illegal for your employer to terminate your employment because of a disability, your age, race, or gender in California. These actions are called wrongful terminations. It’s also illegal for your employer to fire you because you reported unsafe working conditions or reported another employee for some illegal action — otherwise known as retaliation. If you believe you’ve been the victim of retaliation or wrongful termination, the employment law attorneys at the law firm of Michael Burgis & Associates, P.C., can help you take action against those who caused you harm.
In California, an employer can fire their employees without having to give a reason. This is known as “at-will” employment. However, they cannot take adverse actions against you for illegal reasons, such as:
These circumstances are often difficult to prove. You’ll have to have sufficient evidence to make a case that their intentions were to harm you through an illegal act.

We’ll listen to your side of the story and begin looking for the truth. We will fight for your rights and protect you from your employer’s illegal conduct.

Matt helped me out with everything! Ask for Matt! He helped make the process go as smooth as it can possible go. He even helped with legal advice outside the case. He responded within minutes. I would recommend Matt and the firm to everyone. Thanks again!
Michael has shown exceptional litigation skills and has proven to have a high-level understanding of law in complex workers' compensation cases. I first came across his firm through some videos he posted and was impressed by his office staff and his paralegal's understanding of the law as well. Mike's a true advocate for the injured worker.
