JML Hollywood Entertainment Wrongful Termination

Every worker has rights, including those who work in the entertainment industry. However, there may be a time when you need a Los Angeles wrongful termination attorney. If you have been discriminated against and illegally fired from your entertainment job, the team at JML Law is ready to get to work. Let us investigate what happened so we can secure the compensation you need. We can help you take on the entertainment industry.

Behind The Scenes Of The Entertainment Industry

What you see on the screen of a TV show or a movie is the final product that took hundreds, or even thousands, of workers to complete. We know that the US film and TV industry employer more than 2.1 million people, many of them right here in Southern California.

  • The average Hollywood film has over 500 people credited for work, with some films reaching several thousand (Iron Man 3 had more than 3,000 people credited for work).
  • Over 93,000 small businesses work in this industry as support for the larger studios.
  • There is no single regulatory body that oversees this industry.

This industry is more than just actors, directors, and producers. There are costume designers, writers, editors, stunt professionals, special effects crews, and more all working hard behind the scenes.

Discrimination, Harassment, And Retaliation Happen All The Time

Just like any other employer in Southern California, the entertainment businesses regularly discriminate against and wrongfully terminate workers. Employers cannot discriminate against or terminate someone because of their race, nationality, gender, pregnancy status, disability, sexuality, religion, or age.

Employers cannot retaliate against or fire someone for reporting instances of discrimination, harassment, illegal activity, or unsafe working conditions.

Are Entertainment Industry Workers Protected From Wrongful Termination?

Yes, workers in the entertainment industry are protected. While you may have been told your employer does not need a reason to let you go (because this is an “at will” state), you cannot be terminated for illegal reasons. You are protected at both the federal and state levels.

Why Do I Need An Attorney To Help This Case?

Wrongful termination cases can become complex, and you can be sure the other side is going to fight any allegations of illegal behavior. Your Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyer understands the ins and outs of these laws and knows how to uncover the truth.
