Frequently Asked Questions

What Is “At-Will” Employment?

In California, most employment is “at-will.” Being an “at-will” employee means that employers can end a working relationship at any time, even for reasons that may seem unfair or absurd. However, there are notable exceptions.

“Wrongful termination” is a legal term that refers to an illegal firing. Such cases can arise when an employer bases its decision on discriminatory reasons, the termination violates an employment contract, or involves retaliation against an employee for whistleblowing.

How Do You Identify Wrongful Termination?

Although California employers can terminate at-will employees for any lawful reason, firings violating California discrimination laws like The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and other state labor laws or federal discrimination laws are unlawful. Here are several examples of illegal firings:

These are just a few examples of unlawful terminations. If you believe your employer wrongfully terminated you, and you would like to talk to an experienced wrongful termination attorney, Sacramento advocates at Lawyers for Justice, PC are here to listen. We can evaluate your situation, assist you in filing the appropriate claim, and help you determine the best course of action to address your employer’s misconduct.

Is Constructive Discharge the Same as Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful constructive discharge is when an employer creates intolerable working conditions that prompt an employee to resign instead of the employer firing them. If you left your job because your employer made the work environment so difficult or unpleasant that you had no choice but to quit, you may have a valid claim for wrongful termination.

Is There a Distinction Between Discrimination and Wrongful Termination?

If your employer terminates you because you belong to a protected class under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or other federal and state workplace discrimination laws, it constitutes discrimination.

Termination based on your status in a protected class is also considered wrongful termination. In such situations, you may have overlapping legal claims. A skilled wrongful termination lawyer can review your claim and determine if multiple actions or legal protections apply.

What Are the Costs for Hiring a Wrongful Termination Lawyer?

Law firm fees can vary significantly depending on various factors, such as the type of case, the complexity of the claim, and the lawyer’s experience. Different firms may have multiple charging methods, ranging from hourly to contingency fees. We provide free case evaluations, allowing you to discuss costs and fee structures with an experienced employment attorney before proceeding.

What Types of Compensation Are Available for Wrongful Termination Claims?

Compensation varies based on several factors. Typically, damages include lost wages, lost benefits, emotional distress, punitive damages, and attorney fees. Working with skilled wrongful termination lawyers at Lawyers For Justice, PC can significantly improve your likelihood of securing a comprehensive settlement that addresses all your incurred losses and damages.
