When is Termination Wrongful.....Exactly?
Employment in California is presumed to be "at-will". "At-will" means that unless you have an employment agreement which says that you cannot be terminated except for good-cause, you can be fired for any reason, or for no reason at all ! And, you simply cannot sue your boss for failing to recognize your "wonderful-ness" - that is, you can't sue your boss, just for being a jerk.
Here's when you CAN sue:
You can sue if you were terminated BECAUSE of your race, color, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, disability, marital status, or medical condition. These are called "protected classes." It unlawful to discriminate against someone in hiring or firing because the person is a member of a protected class. If you were fired for any of these reasons, you have rights. call us. We can help.
You CAN also sue if you were fired in retaliation for engaging in a legally protected activity, such reporting discriminationm, filing a complaint against your employer, assisting someone else in filing a complaint, participating in an investigation, or for being a "whistleblower" by reporting an unsafe condition, or other illegal activity, to a public entity or to a superior at work.
