In California, it’s not illegal to fire someone. People lose their jobs quite often, often stemming from tardiness or excessive absences, poor job performance and similar. What is illegal is terminating employees for whistleblowing, refusing sexual advances, because they won’t convert religions, or because they belong to protected classes. Some employers even terminate based on gender.

Featuring a wrongful termination attorney Thousand Oaks companies have grown to respect, employees who been mistreated, harassed then terminated for a myriad of reasons may be entitled to financial relief based on the facts surrounding their cases. Our fierce style of litigation is appreciated by many.
According to California statutes, employment contracts are written so either employee or employer can opt out “at will”. Courts have contended that, absence of a written contract, terminating employees without reason have limitations levied by public policy; for example, threatening to terminate employees may result in crimes being committed against the company. In short, California laws allow employers to terminate workers for any legal reason.
In order for employees to file tortious wrongful termination cases, the dismissal must have broken public policy or federal statutes. For example, employers may terminate individuals who poorly perform but cannot terminate racial groups who excel at their position, but retain those of a different race who perform poorly. California FEHA is the initial point of contact for wrongful discharge claims, and will review facts surrounding the violation before clearing employees to seek private action.
It’s difficult to determine what motivates employers to wrongfully terminated people, especially those who never missed a day and perform their duties at or above expectations. The Kaufman Law Firm has taken cases where unjustly discharged employees were highly regarded at work by coworkers, but discharged because their marital status wasn’t what the supervisor expected. Others have been terminated for attending confession during their lunch hour, while even more undergo racial harassment.
