YES! CALIFORNIA IS AN “AT WILL “ STATE…YES! YOU CAN STILL SUE YOUR EMPLOYER FOR WRONGFUL TERMINATION…

WHAT DOES AN AT-WILL EMPLOYMENT MEAN?

The general definition of “at-will” employment means that an employee does not have a written employment contract and that the employer has a right to end the employee’s employment for any reason, at any time, with no notice. You can read more about what it means here.

DOES BEING AN AT-WILL EMPLOYEE MEAN THAT YOUR EMPLOYER CAN WRONGFULLY TERMINATE YOU?

No, it does not. While employees may hear their bosses and managers say that they can just fire them for any reason at any time, that is not necessarily true. There are many employee protections in place. First, there are a number of California State and US Federal laws that protect employees, like the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

BEING AN AT-WILL EMPLOYEE DOES NOT MEAN YOUR EMPLOYER CAN FIRE YOU ILLEGALLY

One of the greatest miconceptions about working in California is that your employer can fire you for any reason at all. They can not! Being an at-will employee in California does not mean that your employer can fire you illegally. A California employer can not terminate their employee for an illegal reason. Some of these illegal reasons are…

  • DISCRIMINATION BASED ON YOUR SEX
  • DISCRIMINATION BASED ON YOUR GENDER
  • DISCRIMINATION BASED ON YOUR RELIGIOUS BELIEF
  • DISCRIMINATION BASED ON YOUR SEXUAL ORIENTATION

WHAT ARE SOME REASONS A FIRED EMPLOYEE MAY BE OWED MONEY FROM THEIR EMPLOYER?

If you have been fired and/or quit an employer that treated you unfairly, then you may be owed money. While an employer may fire you for any reason, that does not mean that they can wrongfully terminate employees. Do you believe that you were fired for an illegal reason? If so, then you may be owed money…

  • WERE YOU FORCED TO WORK THROUGH BREAKS?
  • WERE YOU DISCRIMINATED AGAINST AT WORK?
  • WERE YOU FORCED TO WORK OFF-THE-CLOCK?
  • WERE YOU NOT PAID FOR OVERTIME/BREAKS?
  • WERE YOU FIRED FOR BEING PREGNANT?
  • WERE YOU INJURED AT WORK?
  • WERE YOU WRONGFULLY TERMINATED?
