Wrongful Termination

In California, employers can lawfully fire their employees for many reasons, many of which don't seem fair. However, employers cannot fire employees based on certain protected characteristics, including age, gender, pregnancy, race, religion and disability, and for exercising their right to take protected leave. Such a firing constitutes a wrongful termination.

Furthermore, employers cannot terminate an employee because the employee reported discrimination, harassment or other unlawful employment practices. This also amounts to wrongful termination.

If you have lost your job and you believe it may have been a wrongful termination, the lawyers at California Employment Counsel, APC, are here to help you explore your legal options.
