Most types of employment in California are considered “at-will” employment. This means that an employer (aka your boss) has the right to fire you at any time and for no reason, as long as the cause is not illegal or unlawful. The following are some examples of getting fired for unlawful reasons:
- Retaliation – an employer may not terminate you if, for example, your supervisor fires you for reporting them. In this case, your termination will be considered unlawful;
- Discrimination – termination based on religion, race, gender, age, disability, etc.;
- Breach of the employment contract;
As discussed above, your employer may not terminate you for any reason that is illegal or unauthorized. Suppose you believe that you were wrongfully terminated from your job. In that case, it may be in your best interest to contact our employment law attorneys, who will be able to determine whether you have a claim against your employer. If you have a case, our firm will not get paid unless we win your case.
