Most employees are considered at-will employees, which means that in the absence of an employment contract, the employee can be discharged at any time. However, if the termination of the at-will employee violates any laws, the employee may be entitled to compensation and relief.

Wrongful Termination Hypothetical


The following is an example of a factual scenario which might lead to the termination being deemed wrongful or unlawful:

  • Employee has accumulated overtime pay due to the needs of the business requiring the employee to work extended hours. However, employer fails to properly compensate the employee for the overtime hours. Employee puts employer on notice that he/she has not received proper compensation for their overtime hours. Employer fails to provide the employee the overtime pay, so employee subsequently files a complaint with the labor commissioner to recover his/her unpaid wages. Employer then learns that employee filed the complaint and decides to terminate the employee for “performance”.

In the above scenario, the employee’s termination would likely be deemed unlawful because employer has taken retaliatory action against the employee for filing the complaint. Under California law, employees have the right to receive proper compensation for the hours they work. Thus, the law protects the employee for filing a good faith complaint against the employer or for testifying against the employer in a legal proceeding.
