IN CALIFORNIA, WHAT IS CONSIDERED AN ILLEGAL FIRING?
Employer-employee relationships in California are typically “at-will” agreements. An employer or employee may end the employment with or without cause and with or without notice unless a contract specifies otherwise. Still, you may only be fired for a legal reason. You cannot be fired because of your race, sex, nationality, orientation, religion, disability, or condition of pregnancy. You cannot be terminated for requesting a disability accommodation, overtime, rest breaks, or lunch breaks. You also may not be fired these reasons:
Taking a family, pregnancy, or medical leave
Opposing an employer’s or coworker’s illegal activity
Your family or marital status
Your political affiliation or for taking the time to vote
Your refusal to enter a hazardous work site
Your absence from work for jury duty
Your refusal to sign a non-compete agreement
Our wrongful termination lawyers know the anxiety that a wrongful termination can generate. When you are fired for one or more of these reasons, your rights have been violated. If you are wrongfully terminated, we try first to negotiate a settlement out-of-court. If a negotiated settlement is unavailable, we advocate aggressively for you at trial. We thoroughly assess every detail of your case; then we fight for the result you want and need and the justice you deserve.

“We faced every parent’s absolutely worst nightmare. We lost our twin babies to a tragic and horrible accident. We didn’t know what or if we could do anything about what had happened.
