Among death and divorce, employment termination ranks high in the traumatic events that can have a devastating and long-term effect on one’s quality of life. An unlawful termination greatly compounds such devastation. Certainly, there is no greater dejection during the course of an employee’s devoted career than being unjustly laid off, forced to resign or terminated. It is unlawful for an employer to terminate an employee for discriminatory reasons. It is similarly unlawful for an employer to terminate an employee because the employee has complained about the employer’s illegal activities including, among others, discrimination, harassment, family / medical leave violations, failure to provide reasonable accommodations or other violations that adversely affect the public. It takes immense courage for employees to complain about unlawful conduct to which they have been subjected or which they have witnessed. The confusion and consequences that result when an employer fails to respond to a complaint, responds inadequately or, even worse, commences a retaliatory campaign to oust employees it believes are “squeaky wheels” or “whistle blowers” can quickly disintegrate an employee’s morale. Employees who are terminated under such circumstances have been unlawfully terminated. And even employees who are not terminated sometimes resign under such circumstances because their work environment has become so intolerable as to leave no reasonable option but resignation.
Wrongful termination is a humiliating experience that can cause great uncertainty, the loss of respect, privacy, self-esteem, quality personal and family time, upward mobility or future within a company, benefits and income. In certain situations after a wrongful termination occurs, both the employer and employee may find that a severance package is the most amicable resolution.

“Trust, confidence, and reliability were [the] major factors that impressed me most when I hired the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray to represent me. I was seriously injured at work and was treated very badly by my employer. I’ve gone through many hurdles and obstacles looking for the right attorney to satisfy my needs and expectations but nobody [seemed] to care about me. Some turned me down [while others] took advantage of me. [They] did not even care and appeared to be more interested in what they could get out of my case, thus, putting their [own] personal interest over mine.
I was hopeless and almost gave up, because my workers’ compensation claim was tied [in] with my discrimination/harassment civil lawsuit against my employer, [which] made the whole situation very complicated. However, it was not too late when I met Mr. Nehoray and his office manager, Alma Gavia, who gave me hope and courage. They patiently listened to me and spent time and effort with me. Mr. Nehoray took-on my case despite complications. He handled it with proper care and professionalism.

“Law Offices of Bob Nehoray… I will NEVER be able to thank you enough for what you’ve done for me; and it isn’t the amazing settlement that you got for me that I am most grateful for; it is how professional you and your entire office staff were. Everyone is SO nice [and] caring. They made me feel like a person and not just a ‘client.’ The fact that you were able to handle both my Personal Injury and my Workers’ Compensation cases at the same time was very important as well. Bob, you and Behnaz are the best of the best and you will forever have my appreciation and my HIGH recommendation! All the best to you and everyone at the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray.
