Temecula Wrongful Termination Lawyer
(951) 667-7883 in Hemet or (951) 335-4923 in Temecula
In the modern world of employment, one of the most common accusations an employer may receive from an employee is that they terminated the individual in a wrongful manner. Under California law, most employee-employer relationships fall under the categorization of “at-will” employments. In an at-will employment, the employer generally has the right to fire an employee for any reason, and there does not necessarily need to be “just cause” for a decision.
All clients are eligible to receive a free-of-charge case evaluation.
