What Do You Do When You’re Wrongfully Terminated?


It’s horrible when you get fired. Now you have to find a whole new source of income without any notice ahead of time. It’s even worse when you know it wasn’t fair. You may have a case for wrongful termination and not even know it. Most employees in the state of California can be terminated for any reason. However, this isn’t always the case and people are often mistaken by that. What does wrongful termination really mean? This is when an employee is fired for unlaw reasons.


In order to sue, you will need to prove that it was for an unlawful reason. This includes being fired over: Race Mental disability

Pregnancy or taking maternity leave Using of Family Medical Leave (FMLA or CFRA)

Political affiliation National Origin

Gender Identity

Religion Sexual Orientation


How Fair Employment and Housing Act Defined Termination There are several other examples where your termination can be deemed unlawful. It is usually a reason under the California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). FEHA inhibits discrimination based on religion, race, national origin, age (40 years and above), , sex or sexual orientation, marital status, mental or physical disability, or pregnancy and conditions that come with pregnancy.


At Will Employment It is a common misconception that if you are an “at-will” employee then you cannot claim wrongful termination. “At-will” employment means that the employee doesn’t have a contract with the employer and they can be terminated by the will of the company at any time. This is not an excuse or a pass for a company to commit wrongful termination.


“Whistle Blowing” You’ve probably heard this term before. When you “whistle blow” this means that you report illegal or an unsafe working environment to the employer, law enforcement, or a government agency. Laws that protect whistleblowers protects you when you try to make a complaint directly to the employer and you don’t have to file a complaint with the government.
