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:
Religious Creed (including religious dress and grooming practices)
Denial of Family and Medical Care Leave
Disability (mental and physical)
Military and Veteran Status
Pregnancy, childbirth, and medical conditions related to pregnancy
Gender, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression
