Do you believe that you have been wrongfully terminated? If so, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against your employer and seek compensation for wrongful termination.
There are hundreds of people who are victims of wrongful termination every day. Most of them are not even aware of the fact that they have been wrongfully terminated. But those who are aware of it tend to do the right thing, at least those who are not afraid of any type of retaliation.
If you do decide to go for it and seek compensation for your injuries, the first step is getting an experienced attorney. Here are a few tips that will help you present your wrongful termination case to an attorney.
Gather All Your Information
Before you go to an attorney, collect all the information that you have related to your previous employer and the job that you used to do. If you have a firing note, bring it with you. Bring your previous (Up to 6 months) salary checks and your working schedule. Include your contract (if one exists) and all other information related to your work.
If you can access your email, print out all the correspondence you had with your employer prior to your termination. If you were threatened in any way, verbally or physically, be sure to tell that to your attorney. In case someone saw it, that person could be a valid witness to your case.

Keep Your Emotions in Check
The most important thing to keep in mind while talking to your attorney is to remain calm. If you start yelling at the attorney, you will be asked to leave and therefore lose the help that you came to obtain.
If you feel like crying, try and control it and instead, tell your employer everything that happened, how it happened and what caused it. Include all the details, from when you first felt threatened to the latest confrontation that you had with your employer. Be honest, and tell only the truth. Lying will not get you anywhere.
Speak Slowly and Plainly
To grab the attorney’s attention, be able to describe what happened to you in a few short sentences. Include all the basic information, and do not tell your employer how “complicated your situation is”. Instead, be direct, explain what happened and keep it short.
Most attorneys know what to do, and they understand what you are going through. If you do not know where to go, our offices and our Wrongful Termination Attorneys in Los Angeles are at your disposal. We welcome you, and will gladly help you with your case.
