Wrongful Termination

California is an “at will” employment state. This means that an employer can terminate an employee for any reason or no reason at all with one BIG exception. An employer cannot terminate an employee for an illegal reason.

Some examples of illegal reasons for terminating an employee are found throughout this website. Whether you were terminated because of your race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, pregnancy, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, military and veteran status, request for reasonable accommodations or a leave of absence, or because you refused to participate in or complained about illegal activity, The Schlehr Law Firm may be able to help.

If you believe you have been terminated for an illegal reason, please contact us.
