Wrongful termination occurs when an employer illegally terminates an employee. Examples of illegal termination could include when an employer discriminately fires an employee, breaches the employment contract with their employee, or terminates employment in retaliation for the employee exercising his or her given rights. An employer does not need a reason to terminate employment in California, however, they can not illegally end your employment. If your employer has dismissed your employment based on your race, religion, gender, disability, medical condition, age, or request for family medical leave, consult with legal representation immediately.
