An employer in California has the right to terminate its employees for a valid reason – be it the employee’s inconsistency, poor performance at work, or simply the company’s legitimate business reasons. However, if an employee is terminated for reasons that violate California law and/or public policies of the state, an employee has the right to take legal action.
For example, if an employee complains to a governmental agency regarding unsafe and illegal practices at the workplace and is terminated because of those complaints, that employee may seek relief for Wrongful Termination in Violation of Public Policy. Furthermore, employees are often wrongfully terminated in connection with severe and pervasive forms of discrimination, e.g., race discrimination, age discrimination, gender/sex discrimination, and disability discrimination.
If an employer has terminated you based upon the illegal reasons set forth above, or other unlawful reasons, it is likely that you are suffering severe emotional distress, loss of wages, and do not know what steps to take going forward.
