How to tell if you were wrongfully terminated

On Behalf of | Mar 24, 2022 | Employee Rights

Regardless of the reason, losing your job can be a source of great stress and frustration. It’s even worse if you believe you that are the victim of wrongful termination.

While it is true that employers are not necessarily required to “play fair” all the time, they are nonetheless required to comply with the law. If you suspect wrongful termination, it is time to investigate the situation further. A first step is to get to know some of the most common wrongful termination situations.

Were you wrongfully terminated? More specifically, were you terminated because:

  • you refused to participate in illegal activity?
  • you told your employer that your employer was breaking the law (by committing tax evasion, for example)?
  • you complained about discrimination or harassment in the workplace?
  • you took a medical leave of absence?
  • of your race, gender, disability, religion, or skin color?

The above are some examples of wrongful termination under California law.
