Understanding Wrongful Termination in California

In simple terms, wrongful termination refers to a situation where an employer terminates an employee's contract of employment illegally. This could be due to discrimination, retaliation, refusal to commit illegal acts, or violation of public policies among others.

Signs You May Have Been Wrongfully Terminated

Determining whether you've been wrongfully terminated in California involves assessing the circumstances of your employment termination. In California, employment relationships are generally "at-will," which means an employer can terminate you for any lawful reason or no reason at all, with some exceptions.

Here are some indicators that may suggest wrongful termination:

  • Discrimination: If you were fired due to your race, gender, religion, age, disability, or other protected characteristics
  • Retaliation: If your termination follows actions like reporting workplace violations, discrimination, harassment, or participating in a lawful whistleblowing activity
  • Breach of Contract: If you had an employment contract that stipulated specific termination procedures or guaranteed job security for a certain period, and your employer violated these terms
  • Violation of Public Policy: If your firing violates established public policy, such as refusing to participate in illegal activities or taking legally mandated leaves, it may be wrongful termination.

Evaluating your situation with a qualified Pasadena wrongful termination attorney can provide clarity on whether your termination qualifies as wrongful under California law.
