How to File For Wrongful Termination in San Francisco
To file a wrongful termination claim in California, you can follow these general steps:
- Determine if you have a case: Assess whether your termination violates any laws or employment contracts. Seek legal advice to evaluate the merits of your case.
- Consult with an employment attorney: Speak with an attorney who is licensed to practice in California and specializes in employment law. They can provide guidance and assess your legal options.
- File a complaint with the appropriate agency: Depending on the circumstances, you may need to file a complaint with either the California Labor Commissioner's Office or the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). The Labor Commissioner handles claims related to wage and hour violations, while the DFEH handles claims related to discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
- Obtain a right-to-sue notice: If filing a complaint with the DFEH, you will need to wait for them to investigate your claim. Once the investigation is complete, they may issue a right-to-sue notice, allowing you to proceed with a lawsuit.
- File a lawsuit: If you receive a right-to-sue notice, consult with your attorney to determine the appropriate timing for filing a lawsuit. Lawsuits are typically filed within the statute of limitations, which is generally two years in California for wrongful termination cases.
