Frequently Asked Questions about Employment Law Wrongful Termination in San Diego


I feel like my employer has wrongfully terminated me, what information should I collect?

Keep all documents that outline any occurrences leading up to, during and following your termination in your possession. This may include text messages, photographs, work reports, emails, written incident reports, and many other forms of documentation. Make a list of each date and incident that occurred. Also, make sure to keep track of any witnesses who were present or may have information about each occurrence. Often times, wrongful termination can be a result of one being retaliated against, harassed, or discriminated against. Any such conduct should be documented by you, preferably in writing.

You should speak to a lawyer immediately.
