Wrongful Termination Attorney in Laguna Beach, CA
Although most employer/employee relationships are deemed “at-will” (either party can terminate employment at any time for lawful reasons), employers are legally prohibited from firing an employee for asserting their legal rights.
In California, wrongful termination may include terminating an employee for:
Asserting a legal right
Refusing to engage in illegal activity
Complaining to management or government agencies about unlawful company policies or practices
If an employee is terminated as a result of filing a complaint against their employer, testifying in legal proceedings, filing a workers’ compensation claim, or reporting the employer to the government for any legally prohibited actions or safety violations, under California Law the employer may be held liable for wrongful termination.
