Wrongful Termination

San Francisco, CA Employment Attorneys

Wrongful Termination LawyersWhen an individual loses his or her job, the loss can greatly affect that person and his or her family. The business that once employed that individual may also be impacted, as the company may need to recruit, hire, and train a new person to compensate for the loss. Sometimes, however, there may be questions regarding the appropriateness of an employee’s termination, and legal action may follow. At SAC Attorneys LLP, we provide trusted, efficient representation to individuals and businesses in all types of employment-related matters, including wrongful termination claims.

Understanding Wrongful Termination in California

In the state of California, most employees work under an “at-will” arrangement, which means that the employer or the employee can sever the working relationship at any time for almost any reason. There are exceptions, however, and any termination that is found to be in violation of public policy or state or federal law is considered a wrongful termination. Violating the terms of an employment contract or provisions in an employee handbook could also result in a wrongful termination action. Such a claim could cost the company thousands of dollars in lost revenue and legal expenses, in addition to serious damage to its public reputation.

The skilled attorneys at our law firm have more than 50 years of combined legal experience. We have handled a wide variety of wrongful termination claims on behalf of employers throughout the San Francisco – San Jose area. Our lawyers understand that such claims may arise when there is a perception that a worker has been fired as the result of retaliation for:

A wrongful termination suit may also be brought if the termination appears to have been discriminatory on the basis age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, disability status, medical condition, or military and veteran status.

Client Reviews
Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.
I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao
They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
