In California, employment is at-will, meaning that an employer can fire an employee for almost any reason or no reason. Wrongful termination happens when the employer fires an employee in violation of a particular law. Some illegal reasons include:
DISCRIMINATION FOR A DISABILITY
Under Federal and State laws, individuals with disabilities have certain protections. As a protected classification, it is illegal to discriminate against a disabled individual in all aspects of employment. Determining whether an individual has a qualified disability under the law, including the Americans with Disabilities Act and/or the Fair Employment and Housing Act, can be difficult. If you’re working with a physical or mental impairment, contact our firm to see if you are entitled to legal protection.
WORKPLACE SEXUAL HARASSMENT
Federal and State law protects employees from a wide range of harassment, whether it is verbal or physical abuse or even unwelcome sexual advances. Harassment cases are largely dependent on certain facts and circumstances about the individual’s case. Contact our firm if you think that you might have been harassed at work, and we will discuss the legal solutions that may be available to you.
An employer should be held liable for retaliating actions against employees who use their legal rights such activities might be filing a complaint about discrimination or harassment in the workplace. If you feel you have faced retaliatory actions by your employer, please contact our firm for a consultation.
Whistleblowing is similar to retaliation cases; they tend to occur in different circumstances. Whistleblower protection is valid for employees who report illegal acts being done by the employer and face consequences such as a demotion or getting fired. Please contact our firm to find out if you are eligible for whistleblower protection under the law.
WAGE AND HOUR
Both State and Federal laws protect employees from wage and hour violations. Such violations often affect an entire category of workers and not just one employee. Violations can include:
- Not paying earned over time
- Being asked to work through meal and rest breaks
- Being required to go to work but not being paid for the time you had to wait
- Being fired for complaining about violations.
