California is an “at-will” employment state. This means that your employer can generally fire you for any reason or for no reason at all – as long as your termination is not in violation of the law or in breach of a valid employment contract.
An employment termination based on discrimination, retaliation, fraud or a violation of a contract is generally considered wrongful termination and is actionable under law. In fact, when an employee is terminated on the basis of age, sex, disability, race, national origin, religion, or in retaliation for certain types of whistleblowing, a legal action for wrongful termination may be viable.
Victims of wrongful termination have many options and it is important to select an experienced attorney who is not only a skilled negotiator, but an aggressive litigator and zealous advocate.
