What Is Wrongful Termination in California?
"Wrongful termination" is a legal term to describe when an employer fires or lays off an employee for unlawful reasons. Illegal reasons for termination include firing someone:
- As a form of discrimination
- As a form of sexual harassment
- In violation of oral and written employment agreements
- In violation of labor laws
- In retaliation against whistleblowing or a valid employee complaint
When an employer wrongfully terminates an employee, they could face statutory penalties. Other cases will result in the employer paying damages to the terminated employee for their lost wages and other expenses resulting from the wrongful loss of their job. Some wrongful termination cases could even result in punitive damages for the employer.
