Temecula Wrongful Termination Lawyer

(951) 652-9000 in Hemet or (951) 652-9000 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.

Whether you are an employer or employee, our Temecula wrongful termination lawyers can represent you in employment law cases. For employers, we work to prove that the termination was without discrimination or retaliation so the business is protected.

For employees, we work to prove that you were let go due to prejudice or as a retaliatory act due to a report of illegal activity. Our goal is to protect the rights and well-being of our clients.

Exceptions to At-Will Employment

There are circumstances in which at-will employment would not apply, and a firing would be against the law.

An employer cannot let go of an employee for the following reasons:

  • Ethnic, racial, or religious background
  • Gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation
  • Age
  • Disability, pregnancy, or other health status
  • Political identity
  • Retaliatory action against an employer who complained about illegal activity
  • Employee files a workers’ compensation claim
  • Employee took time off for jury duty, family reasons, medical reasons, or voting
