Los Angeles employment lawyers at the Genie Harrison Law Firm are here to protect individuals who have lost their job and feel that they have been fired unfairly.

Wrongful termination, also known as wrongful dismissal, occurs when an employer fires or discharges an employee in a way which violates the employee’s legal rights. Although the concept of wrongful termination is simple at first glance, it is complicated by the “at-will” doctrine, which states that an employee can be terminated at any time, and for any reason, so long as that reason is not itself illegal.

California, like most other states, has adopted the “at-will” doctrine, and restricts employees’ ability to bring wrongful termination suits against their employers, even when an employment contract is involved. This means that employees can generally be let for any reason or no reason at all. There are very specific exceptions to employment “at will” rules, including:

  • Violations of public policy, including sexual harassment and pregnancy discrimination
  • Violations of existing employment contracts
  • Firing after inducement
  • Illegal Discrimination
  • Retaliatory discharge, including whistle blower claims
  • Breach of contract
  • Breach of good faith

A number of factors can influence how a wrongful termination claim is resolved. Documents that an employee may have signed, rights waived by either employee or employer, and the circumstances surrounding the dismissal — all of these can affect the outcome of a California wrongful termination lawsuit.
