Just talk to an attorney, that’s the easiest way. It’s not hard to find a workplace discrimination lawyer in Los Angeles and other cities who offers free initial consultations. No strings attached. Some law firms will even offer case evaluations on the phone or via email. Law firms want your business, just like any other for-profit organization. They’re not inaccessible.
It’s also good to talk to an attorney because employment law is a complicated field. What may qualify as wrongful termination will depend on the laws and legal precedent in your state, and potentially even your legal district. Talking to a local attorney is the best way to get the best possible outcome for your case.
That said, some cases are more obvious than others. You probably have a wrongful termination case if you were fired as a result of sexual harassment, race discrimination, whistleblower retaliation, or for exercising your rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act.
