Wrongful Termination Attorney in Santa Clarita
Most California employees are "at-will" employees-meaning they
can be fired or laid off for any reason, as long as the reason is not
illegal. Illegal reasons include terminations based on race, gender, sexual
orientation, or physical disability. Illegal reasons may also include
retaliation for reporting employer violations of laws and regulations,
retaliation from rejecting sexual overtures, and retaliation for attempting
to protect others whose civil rights have been violated. Further, illegal
reasons may include termination in violation of an employment contract
or in violation of other state and federal labor laws. A wrongful termination
occurs when an employee, even an at-will employee, is fired for an illegal reason.
In some instances, an employee may be effectively forced to resign for
reasons that violate public policy. If an employee is required to work
under conditions that are so offensive, hostile or intolerable that a
reasonable person would have no reasonable choice but to resign, the employee's
resignation may amount to constructive wrongful termination.
Employees subjected to unlawful conduct in California in violation of
their rights under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (including unlawful
discrimination and/or harassment) must file a complaint with the Department
of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) within one year or they may lose
their right to sue.
