Our Northridge wrongful termination attorneys have considerable experience in this field of law, including experience representing employers, so we know how your employer will likely operate to fight your claim. You can get started with understanding where you stand and how best to proceed by discussing your case with one of our lawyers in a free and confidential consultation.

Fired Without Cause in California

Like other states, California operates on the concept that employees work at will, meaning they can be fired when an employer sees fit, whether with or without notice. However, employers are prohibited from firing anyone for the wrong reasons. Should you lose your job based on reasons prohibited by the law, you may have the grounds for a claim.

Call us at (800) 590-7674 or contact us online for legal counsel concerning your wrongful termination case today.

The Law Regarding Wrongful Termination

The law prohibits firing an employee in the following situations:

  • In violation of a written or implied contract, such as in an employee handbook that states you cannot be fired without good cause
  • In violation of public policy, such as a discriminatory action based on your race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, sexual orientation, medical condition, and other protected categories
  • In retaliation against your complaints to the company of unlawful or unethical conduct or your actions as a whistleblower in disclosing such activity to the appropriate authorities
  • In retaliation against your workers’ compensation claim
  • In retaliation for exercising any right protected under either state or federal employment law
  • Because you exercised a legal obligation, such as jury duty
  • Because you filed a complaint about workplace harassment, sexual harassment, or discrimination
  • For taking medical leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

You may be eligible for damages in a wrongful termination claim, which may include the wages and benefits you have lost, compensation for the stress of losing your employment, and attorneys’ fees and court costs. Punitive damages may also apply against employers who have willfully committed wrongful actions.
