Wrongful Termination and Workplace Tort Litigation
Good Cause and Beyond: CA Counsel on Workplace Litigation
California’s standing as a center of commercial ingenuity and innovation is often at odds with its pro-employee legal environment that is hospitable to wrongful termination, defamation and tort claims. Employee discipline and discharge, especially in a climate of high unemployment, can trigger lawsuits that threaten your business operations, company reputation, workforce morale, and market competitiveness.
CDF defends employers against claims from employees in protected classes and allegations of violation of federal EEO laws, FEHA, public policy and contract law. We also represent employers in a range of workplace tort claims, including actual and constructive discharge, breach of contract, defamation, invasion of privacy, fraud, and other common law claims brought by former and current employees.
Our experience allows us to counsel you in traditional and emerging areas of employment disputes including:
- Breach of Employment Contract Issues
- Defamation Litigation
- Infliction of Emotional Distress
- Social Media Issues
- Workplace Invasion Privacy Claims
- Wrongful Termination Claims
- Fraud/Misrepresentation Lawsuits
- Whistleblower Matters
