Wrongful termination’s specifics
We live in an “at will” state in California, which means that employers can terminate their employees at any moment for any reason – or no reason at all. That is, they are free to do so as long as their motivation is legitimate. The following are examples of unlawful justifications for dismissal:
- Discrimination. Being fired based on religion, gender, age over 40, race, handicap, pregnancy, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, or gender identity and expression are all examples of discrimination.
- Retaliation. If your boss takes action against an employee for engaging in protected activities such as taking family leave, reporting their employer’s illegal practices, serving on a jury, reporting dangerous working conditions, voting, or filing a workplace discrimination or harassment complaint, they are acting illegally.
- Infringing on a contract. If you and your employer have a contract that details the firm’s termination method and conditions, the company must follow it. They might be in violation of contract if they don’t.
