In general, all employees in California are considered at-will. This is the general rule in California. Some employees have agreements that limit the employer’s ability to terminate without cause. However, in most cases, the employment relationship may be terminated at any time, or for any reason, or for no reason.
There are, however, a number of exceptions to the at-will rule. For example, an employer cannot fire an employee based on a protected classification, such as age, race, or gender. An employer also cannot fire an employee for engaging in protected activity, such as taking medical leave or requesting accommodation for a disability. Here are several key examples of unlawful termination.
