In California most employment relationships are governed by what is known as “at-will” employment. This means that employees can be terminated at any given time without any notice, for any reason or no reason as long as that reason is not discriminatory or otherwise illegal. Under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”), employees cannot be terminated, harassed or retaliated against based on their sex, age, race, religion, color, and national origin, gender. Under provisions of the California Labor Code and other state and federal laws, employees cannot be discharged for making bona-fide complaints about their pay, wages or other terms of employment or for reporting conduct in violation of a state, federal or local law or regulation.
Nevertheless, hundreds of employees are terminated illegally in California. Before an employee files a lawsuit for wrongful termination, you must file a complaint with the Department of Fair Housing and Employment (“DFEH”), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) or other applicable state or local government agency in the state.
