Wrongful Termination In Violation Of Public Policy
California prohibits employers from firing employees if that discharge would be in violation of public policy. This is true even though California is an at-will employment state, and employers may discharge an employee at any time without cause. Employees who are discharged due to violations of public policy may be able to file a claim to recover compensation for lost wages, punitive damages and other damages.
