Rancaño & Rancaño
Modesto Wrongful Termination Experts
At Rancaño & Rancaño we only represent employees. We only represent the wrongfully terminated victim. We never represent the unscrupulous employer. We understand the victim’s anxiety over the future; their anger, and the humiliation that victims of wrongful termination are feeling when they walk through our doors.
Most have lost more than just a paycheck. They have lost careers,
sources of personal pride and their ability to meet their family's financial needs.
Wrongful termination can cause a serious loss of self-esteem and lead to depression.
UNDERSTANDING "AT WILL" EMPLOYMENT
In California, absent some labor or employment contract, employees are presumed to be employed “at will.” This means that the employee can quit the job whenever he or she desires and that the employer can fire the employee at any time and for any reason.
However, if the reason for the termination is discriminatory, for example: because of the employee’s sex, age, religion, race, ancestry, marital status, sexual orientation or disability, among other so called “protected categories,” the termination is illegal.
WHAT ARE "PROTECTED CATEGORIES"?
If your employer fires you because you are too tall or too short, for example, it isn't necessarily actionable discrimination. The employer must be discriminating on the basis of a “protected category” for the discrimination to be illegal.
The most common situations of wrongful termination arise when the employee is subjected to unlawful discrimination such as sexually harassment, unlawful retaliation, or where the termination specifically violates a public policy.
You Must File Your Claim Immediately
If you believe you are the victim of an unlawful termination, you should seek the advice of an employment attorney without further delay.
You may lose important legal rights if you delay too long. If you are currently employed and your employer is harassing you or discriminating against you, the best time to consult an experienced employment attorney is actually before termination.

most helpful advice. At Rancaño & Rancaño we have that knowledge and
