No one wants to be fired from their job, but when a person loses their job due to the lack of fair and equitable treatment in their workplace, it can be even worse. Regardless of whether losing their job involved being fired, laid off, or downsized, if it constitutes wrongful termination then it is worth contacting an experienced attorney for help.

The specifics of wrongful termination
In California, we are an “at will” state, which means that employers can fire their workers at any time for any reason – or even if they have no reason. That is, they may do so as long as their reason is not illegal. Some of the illegal reasons for dismissal include:
- Discrimination based on religion, gender, being over 40 years old, race, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, ethnicity, national origin, or gender identity and expression.
- Retaliation for an employee who engaged in protected activities such as taking family leave, reporting illegal practices by their employer, taking time off for jury duty, reporting unsafe working conditions, taking time off to vote, taking medical leave, or filing a workplace discrimination or harassment complaint.
- Violating a contract. If you have a contract with your employer that covers their termination procedure and requirements, then the company must comply with said contract. If they do not, then they could be in breach of contract.
