Wrongful Termination Rights In An At-Will Employment State
As an employee, you depend on regular paychecks to support yourself. Although California is an at-will employment state, and your boss could let you go at any time, they may not fire you based on certain protected characteristics, such as your race, sex, age, religion or sexual orientation.
Some unfortunate situations can require a business to release a worker from their employ. However, there are specific circumstances in which you could take legal action against your employer for your wrongful termination. The employment law attorneys at Goldberg & Gage can protect your best interests if you believe your job loss was illegal.
