Wrongful Termination

Wrongful Termination Attorney in Orange County, California

California Is an At-Will Employment State

California is an at-will state when it comes to employment which generally means that an employer can terminate an employee with or without notice or without cause. However, an employer cannot terminate an employee for an illegal reason.  If it does, the employer has wrongfully terminated that employee.  Both California and Federal law prohibit wrongful termination based on certain characteristics by covered employers1. 

California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) protects you against unlawful termination based on the following improper reasons:

    • Age
    • Ancestry
    • Color
    • Religious Creed (including religious dress and grooming practices)
    • Denial of Family and Medical Care Leave
    • Disability (mental and physical)
    • Marital Status
    • Medical Condition
    • Genetic Information
    • Military and Veteran Status
    • National Origin
    • Race
    • Pregnancy, childbirth, and medical conditions related to pregnancy
    • Gender, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression
    • Sexual Orientation
