What Is Wrongful Termination for At-Will Employees?
There are many reasons why an employer may choose to terminate an employee, such as poor job performance or breaking the company's rules listed in the handbook. However, in employment law, it is illegal to terminate an individual's employment based on their protected class. If you believe that your protected class had a part in being wrongfully fired, we can help you hold your employer responsible.
At-will employees must be treated fairly in regards to termination. An employee cannot be terminated due to their:
- Gender identity
- Political affiliation
- Religious affiliation
- Sexual orientation
- Military or veteran status
- Marital status
- Nation of origin
California's employment laws are clear on the protection of employees throughout their course of employment, which includes termination. Cases, however, can be nuanced and it is important to determine the cause of termination, especially in light of past misbehavior or wrongdoing on the part of your employer. Our attorneys will look into your specific situation and guide you based on your legal rights and the facts of your unique circumstances.
