What does an at-will employment mean in california?

At-will employment means that an employer could let go of an employee for any reason, and an employee could leave their employer for any reason. But, this does not mean that an employer could just let go of an employee for any reason. Certain legal protections prevent an employer from taking unfair action.

What is wrongful termination in California?

Wrongful termination occurs when an employer lets go of an employee based on illegal reasons. Many employees do not even know that they may have a proper lawsuit for wrongful termination. That is why we recommend that you speak to our attorneys if you suspect that your employer has been treating you unfairly.

What are unlawful reasons for termination?

  • If an employer and the employee have an employment contract that guarantees the employee work for the employer for a specific amount of time, then the employer cannot let go of the employee. This means that the minute that the employer lets go of the employee before the contract runs, the employee may have the right to file a wrongful termination suit.
  •  If an employer fires an employee to get back at something the employee has done, then the employee not only has a wrongful termination lawsuit on their hands, but they could also file a lawsuit for retaliation at the workplace. For example, if an employee speaks up against wrongdoing actions of their employer, and their employer lets go of that employee, then the employee has a basis for unjust termination.
  •  If an employer lets go of an employee based on discrimination, then the employee most likely has a wrongful termination claim. Discrimination should not be the basis for letting go of an employee.

Although it seems very straightforward when listed out, oftentimes it is very difficult to tell what the basis is for termination. That is why we recommend that you speak to our attorneys. Sometimes, an in-depth investigation must be done into the employer to determine what the determining factor was in the workplace termination. For example, if the employer had a history of discriminating against their employees and firing their employees based on this discrimination, then you most likely have a strong workplace termination claim.
