What Qualifies as Wrongful Termination in California?

In California, most employees are hired on an "at-will" basis. While some people think this means an employer can fire the employee at any time, for any reason, this is not true. There are still legal guidelines employers must follow when terminating an employee.

At-will employees must be treated fairly in regards to termination. An employee cannot be terminated due to their:

  • Disability
  • Gender identity
  • Age
  • Political affiliation
  • Religious affiliation
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy
  • Military or veteran status
  • Marital status
  • Nation of origin

It is also illegal to terminate an employee for filing a complaint about discrimination or sexual harassment. Additionally, employees cannot be terminated for acting as a whistleblower.

Is Wrongful Termination Hard to Prove in California?

California's employment laws are clear on the protection of employees throughout their course of employment, which includes termination. It is important to determine the cause of termination, especially in light of past wrongdoing on the part of your employer. The employee should document as much information as possible to prove their termination was wrongfully and unethically handled.

However, without the help of an attorney, wrongful termination can be very hard to prove. It may not be blatantly obvious that laws were violated when the termination happened.

If you believe that you were fired under illegal circumstances, you should seek legal representation right away. At Badame Law Group, our wrongful termination lawyers work to hold employers accountable when they violate the laws meant to protect you.
