Employment Attorney in California
Employer Wrongful Termination
California is an “at will” state, which means employers can terminate you for any reason – unless that reason is discriminatory. If you have been terminated for reasons that you suspect are related to your race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, request for medical leave or an accommodation, or reporting a violation, you may have a claim for wrongful termination.
The term “wrongful termination” does not mean you have been terminated for a false reason or that the termination was unfair. It is not illegal for your boss to be a jerk or to not like you. You must prove that your termination was motivated in whole or in part by a protected class – your race, gender, age, etc. In cases where negative or differential treatment is so severe or pervasive that it alters the conditions of your employment, such that you feel you must resign, you may have a claim for wrongful termination. A wrongful termination is a form of discrimination and is a legal issue we handle frequently.
