If you were terminated by your employer, you are likely and understandably frustrated by the going through the experience. You are also probably wondering if you have a case to sue your employer for wrongful termination. Our Newport Beach, California wrongful termination attorney provides comprehensive feedback to each potential client with regards to whether we believe facts exist to pursue a claim.
The most common misconception about wrongful termination is that the employers need to provide employees with a reason for their termination. Many also assume that this reason must be reduced to writing and provided to the employees at the time of discharge. However, if you didn’t sign an employment contract with your former employer, you are considered an at-will employee. Most employers have you sign an at-will acknowledgement waiver when you begin employment. So what does this mean? It means that your employer can lawfully terminate your employment with the company at any time. Not only that, but they don’t need to even provide you with a reason for doing so.
Wrongful Termination does not exist without a violation of the law. A good way to think of it is by taking the phrase “unlawful termination” literally. If the termination breaches any state or federal laws, it will be considered “wrongful” and will therefore give rise to potential recourse for the employee.
There are a large number of employment and labor laws currently in place, both on state and federal levels, which provide protection to employees in the workplace. For example, a few broad protected areas are terminations based on various forms of discrimination and retaliatory practices of employers. There are also a large number of public policy considerations which are designed to protect employees from wrongful termination.
