California At-Will Employment & Wrongful Termination
Civil Litigation Lawyer in Valencia, California Explains Types of Unlawful Termination
In the state of California, most employees are "at will," which means that they can be demoted or terminated for any legal reason, and similarly, employees possess the right to quit or resign from their position at any time. There are some cases, however, when employers unlawfully terminate employees due to discrimination, retaliation, or for a number of other reasons. If you believe that you have been the victim of wrongful termination, then you need to seek the representation of our firm to help you pursue the compensation that you need. There are two general categories in which wrongful termination of an employee typically fall:
- Discrimination — This may be based on age, race, orientation, gender, religion, political affiliation, or other characteristics.
- Retaliation — There are some situations in which employees threaten employers with exposure or a report of illegal conduct, and employers try to prevent this report by wrongfully terminating the employee. In addition, an employer may unlawfully terminate an employee for filing a workers' compensation claim or taking time off for various personal reasons.
