Employment in California law is presumed to be at-will employment. This means that your employer can fire you for nearly any reason or even no reason. You also have the opportunity to end your employment relationship for no reason at all, as long as you are not in an employment contract. However, at-will employment is not limitless, as employers may not discharge you for reasons that violate your rights under federal or state law.
If you believe your termination was unlawful and violated your rights, you should not delay in speaking with our San Jose wrongful termination lawyers. We can evaluate the circumstances surrounding your firing and advise you whether you have a valid claim. We stand up for the rights of employees, so please do not wait to contact the office of Minnis & Smallets LLP for help.
There are many different labor and employment laws that protect employees; employees are also protected by the public policy of the state of California. When a termination violates the law or public policy, it is considered to be wrongful, and the former employee has the right to take legal action. The following are only some of the many possible reasons why termination might be unlawful:
If you were the victim of wrongful termination, you deserve to recover for all the lost income and other losses you incurred as a result. However, proving an employer terminated you for an unlawful reason can be more challenging than you might think. Employers will defend against wrongful termination in any possible manner, and you need a legal advocate protecting your right to compensation and other legal relief.
