Wrongful Termination

Southern California Wrongful Termination Lawyers

California is considered an “at-will” employment state. What this means is that employers can fire and employee for any reason —ormdash; no reason at all. This may seem harsh or unfair, but that is the way it works. Workers who do not have a signed employment contract with their employer, or who have not worked for the employer for more than 5-years are generally considered “at-will employees” and work without any degree of job security.

Fired? Terminated? Discharged? Dismissed? Let Go?

Frankly, anyone who has ever been dismissed from a job thinks that it was unfair –and maybe it is. That said, under the law, an unfair termination is not necessarily a wrongful termination. A wrongful termination is a legal term that refers to a termination that happened illegally. You need to consult with an employment lawyer to determine whether you have an actionable wrongful termination case if you have been fired.

Examples of Wrongful Termination Cases

  • Employees who were fired after they filed a legal claim against their employers for workers compensation, or sexual harassment
  • Employers retaliating against whistle-blowers
  • Employers retaliating against an employee who refused to engage in illegal or unethical behavior
  • Employees who were fired in violation of their employment contract

Employees who were fired because of discrimination based on:

  • Race, ethnicity or national origin,
  • Age,
  • Gender or sex,
  • Disability,
  • Religion,
  • Sexual orientation, and
