Have You Been Wrongfully Discharged?
California employment law has carved out certain exceptions to the at-will employment law policy. Employers cannot terminate an employee on the basis of several discrimination and harassment reasons. An employer that engages in wrongful discharge can be held responsible for employment law violations.
Wrongful Discharge Is Illegal
While employment in the United States is usually “at will,” meaning an employer can fire an employee at any time, the employer is not able to fire anyone because of:
- Sexual orientation
- Reporting a sexual harassment claim
- Family and Medical Leave Act absences
- Support for a sexual harassment, discrimination or whistleblower claim
Many employees have difficulty understanding whether their employer engaged in wrongful discharge. It can be tricky for an employee to know for certain whether the employer relied on an illegal reason as cause for termination.
Our employment law attorneys have extensive experience investigating employees’ allegations of wrongful termination. We know how to collect important evidence that can bolster a claim of wrongful discharge.
