Many employers all over California abuse their power and cross the line. Whether we are talking about wrongful termination or discrimination at the workplace, these things happen every day and over 100 individuals are affected in Los Angeles alone every day.
If you were terminated recently, the chances are that you may have been a victim of wrongful termination. If you have any reason to believe so, you should immediately schedule a free consultation with one of wrongful termination Attorneys in Los Angeles from Rager Law Firm and triple check whether or not you were illegally terminated.
If you are a victim of wrongful termination or workplace discrimination, you may file a claim and if successful, you could receive a substantial compensation. Here is what you can receive by filing a wrongful termination claim.
Since the moment you got terminated, you have been losing wages. Finding another job is not easy, and it may take a while before you are back and working. If your wrongful termination claim is successful, you may receive compensation for your lost wages, calculated from the day you were terminated until the present day. In the case where you were unable to find work by the time of trial or settlement, you may also receive “future wage loss”. Speak with a knowledgeable attorney to learn more about lost wages and what is the exact amount you can receive after your claim is successful.
Besides lost wages, a victim of wrongful termination may also receive compensation for the loss of benefits. This involves medical and health insurance, as well as fringe benefits (loss of stock options ). Once everything is taken into consideration, you will know exactly how much you will receive for your lost benefits.
Suffering and Stress
Any type of suffering that you go through is known as emotional distress. As a result of the wrongful termination, you went through a mental anguish and had to deal with everyday stress and emotional suffering. Getting compensated for emotional distress is extremely difficult, as it is hard to prove and calculate. It is most likely in cases where the alleged actions are outrageous (sexual harassment and discrimination). If you are a victim of any such behavior, your best bet is to get in touch with one of our available Los Angeles Workplace Discrimination Attorneys. The attorneys of Rager Law Firm are skilled in handling such cases and will assist you in securing the compensation for emotional distress.

Besides monetary value, some people simply want to make a change. If they are able to change the company’s policy, they will prevent any such behavior in the future. Additionally, some individuals simply want to see justice or want a personal revenge. Again, these are personal reasons, and they vary from one person to another.
It is important to act. Don’t let anyone intimidate you through fear or false threats. Know your rights, and the attorneys at Rager Law firm will help you enforce them.
