Los Angeles Wrongful Termination Lawyer
California is an “at-will” employment state. This means that employees can generally be fired at the will of their employer—for any or no reason at all. While this may seem unfair or just plain wrong, individuals that do not have a signed contract with their employer or have not worked for the company more than 5 years are usually considered “at-will employees” and work without job security.
While many unfair firings may still be legal in California, there are occasions where an employee’s discharge is illegal. An employment termination based on discrimination, retaliation, fraud or violation of a signed or implied contract is considered wrongful termination and punishable under law. When an employee is fired on the basis of their age, sex, disability, race or religion or in retaliation for whistleblowing, he or she may pursue legal action against their employer.
