Although at-will employees can suddenly lose their jobs, employers can be held liable for wrongful termination if they have an unlawful reason.

If you have recently been fired by your employer and are wondering if the employer’s actions were illegal, then please contact Southern California Labor Law Group PC today so we can discuss your situation and help you determine if you can file a wrongful termination lawsuit.

What Is Considered Wrongful Termination in California?

In California, wrongful termination occurs when an employee is fired for discriminatory reasons. These reasons can include, gender, age, disability status, religion and more.

While some wrongful termination cases are fairly straightforward, others are more complicated to prove and require in-depth investigation and analysis. For example, California law prevents employers from firing employees for taking time off to vote, serve on a jury or take time off to serve in the military. None of these are cause for termination and we expand upon this list below.

The following can be considered wrongful termination under California’s employment laws:

  • Firing an employee because they have a physical or mental disability
  • Firing an employee for being pregnant
  • Firing an employee for reasons based on race, gender, age, sex, religion, or national origin
  • Firing an employee because of their political beliefs or activities
  • Firing an employee for being a whistleblower
  • Firing an employee for requesting unpaid wages

What Is Constructive Termination or Dismissal?

Constructive termination occurs when an employer makes working conditions so unbearable that the employee is forced to resign.

Examples of constructive dismissal include:

  • Humiliating an employee in the workplace
  • Making substantial changes to an employees workplace location without giving adequate notice
  • Falsely accusing an employee of misconduct
  • Lowering an employee’s pay without a reasonable explanation
  • Allowing sexual harassment and other behaviors that create a hostile work environment
