When employees are fired, they often believe they have been wrongfully terminated. That belief should be tempered with the reality that California is an “at will” employment state. Most employees can be fired for any reason or for no reason at all, as long as they are not fired for an improper reason.
For instance, you cannot be fired in retaliation for complaining about sexual harassment or national origin. Similarly, an employer may not terminate employment because an employee has taken medical or disability leave in accordance with California law. Nor may an employer terminate employment because of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation. The employee rights attorneys of Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., can assist with your wrongful termination claim.
Although California is an “employment at will” state, federal and state laws provide protections to employees fired in the following circumstances:
You do not have to be a victim of wrongful termination to pursue litigation against an employer. Many times, employees are demoted, passed over for promotions, or get reduced hours or responsibilities for complaining about unlawful practices.
Bracamontes & Vlasak, P.C., also represents employees with wage and hour violations, when employees are not getting paid for overtime, are being forced to work off the clock, are improperly designated as salaried employees or contractors, or are forced to take “comp time” in lieu of overtime pay.
