How to Determine If You Have a Wrongful Labor Termination Case?
Identifying whether your firing was legal or illegal is one of the trickiest parts of any specific California employment dispute (referred to as wrongful termination). The first thing to realize is that most jobs are “at-will,” which implies that an employee may be fired at any time for any reason the employer deems appropriate.
The at-will employment legislation does have several exceptions, though, in which you might be able to sue your employer.
For the following reasons, it is unlawful to fire an at-will employee in California:
- Discrimination is based on sexual orientation, gender, age, color, religion, pregnancy, disability, race, or national origin.
- Safeguarded Absences
Please get in touch with employment law lawyers at The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker immediately to learn more about your legal options and determine whether you have a case for wrongful termination of employment.
Can I Sue My Boss While I’m Still Employed By Them?
Workers often don’t file a lawsuit against their company until the employment relationship has separated. Some people, however, decide to proceed with the claim while the wrongdoing business still employs them. The latter is a dangerous and perhaps divisive course of action, but some select it if they haven’t been fired yet and want to exert pressure on their company to treat them better or make things right.
