Wrongful Terminations In California
California law presumes that most employer-employee relationships are “at-will.” This means the employer (or the employee) may terminate the relationship at any point, with or without cause. However, the “cause” must be legal. You cannot be terminated in California for any of these reasons:
- Your race, sex, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or pregnancy
- Requesting overtime, rest breaks, or lunch breaks
- Requesting a disability accommodation
- Opposition to unlawful activity
- Taking a pregnancy, family, or medical leave
- Refusing to enter a dangerous job site
- Your marital or family status
- Your political affiliation or taking time to vote
- Your refusal to sign a non-compete clause
- Your absence from work due to jury duty
