Wrongful Termination Archives

Can I claim wrongful termination if I accepted severance pay?

When you had your employment terminated, it is likely that you were in a state of shock and perhaps panic. When such an unexpected thing happens, we may worry about our future, and especially about our finances. Therefore, when a severance pay package is offered, we will most likely accept it without thinking twice.

Can I be wrongfully terminated under at-will employment?

When a person is employed at-will in the state of California, it means that there is no notice period that either employee or employer must adhere to when ending the employment relationship. This means that the terms of employment are not very secure and there will likely be no severance package or other benefits to come with the employment termination unless it is stated in the contract.

2 examples of wrongful termination in California

Nearly all American states embrace the "at-will" employment concept. What this means is that employees and employers are both free to end a working relationship whenever they want. This termination or employment can occur for a specific reason or for no reason at all. However, this does not give California employers the right to fire a worker in an unlawful manner.

Identifying discrimination-based wrongful termination

This might not make sense to some people, but it can actually be difficult to identify wrongful termination. For example, if an employer has been thinking about getting rid of a worker for illegal reasons, he or she may disguise the termination by listing a legal reason for firing the worker. Because the vast majority of employment in California is "at-will," wrongful termination can go completely overlooked.

Federal and state laws protect Californians and their jobs
