Losing a job under any circumstance can be difficult, but when the termination is unjust, it compounds the stress and uncertainty. This article aims to shed light on wrongful termination, how it’s defined under California law, and how Moore Ruddell LLP can serve as your ally during such trying times.
In the employment landscape of California, most employment relationships are defined as “at-will,” which means the employer or the employee can terminate the relationship at any time and for any reason, with certain exceptions. Wrongful termination occurs when an employer ends an employment contract in violation of legal protections, such as those against discrimination, harassment, retaliation, or breach of public policy.
Discrimination can include termination based on age, race, sex, religion, disability, or other protected attributes. Retaliation refers to instances where an employer terminates an employee for exercising their legal rights, like reporting harassment or unsafe work conditions. Breach of public policy encompasses situations where an employer fires an employee for engaging in legally protected activities, like jury duty or voting.
