Wrongful Termination

California has three exceptions to the general rule that employment is "at will." If you have been terminated for reasons contrary to California public policy, breach of an implied contract for employment, or breach of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing in the relationship you may have a claim for wrongful termination.

Retaliation occurs when an employer takes a negative action, like termination, against an employee for engaging in a protected activity such as threatening to file a claim or actually filing a claim against the employer for a violation of law, engaging in recognized constitutional rights, taking time off to appear in court to comply with a subpoena or other court order, taking time off to engage in fire or law enforcement training, taking time off appear at a pupil's school at the request of the pupil's teacher, to participate in activities of the child's school, school emergencies or to locate or enroll the child in school or child care, for using sick leave to care for a child, parent, spouse, or domestic partner.
