Woman accuses county of wrongful termination

California residents who are employed should be able to know and trust that they will be treated respectfully while on the job. Certainly there are laws that aim to prevent blatant discrimination and harassment yet they do not always manage to stop people who simply choose to do the wrong things. Similarly, people are supposed to be able to report inappropriate behavior without fear of any form of retaliatory behavior.

One form of retaliation may actually be witnessed by being fired for inappropriate reasons. This is, in essence, an integral component to a case recently filed by a woman against her former employer. The suit is actually against both Orange County and the Orange County Supervisor. The plaintiff worked for the county for more than three years beginning in February 2013. Over the course of time, the woman experienced extreme levels of stress which then led to health problems including hair loss, depression and anxiety.

The medical issues were said to be caused by the harsh working environment led largely by the negative temper of the County Supervisor. Eventually the woman reported the behavior and asked for a transfer to a new position under different supervision. Instead of having her request granted, the woman was terminated in the fall of 2016. She has since filed a wrongful termination lawsuit.

Employees who must work in unfair or inappropriate environments deserve help. Talking with an attorney when a hostile work environment is present may help to offer ideas on how to proceed.
