One question that often comes up in the employment law context is whether or not someone has to actually lose his or her job in order to sue for wrongful termination. While logically it makes sense that a "termination" is an integral part of a "wrongful termination," there are exceptions to every rule. Earlier cases seemed to require an actual or constructive discharge to give rise to a claim for wrongful discharge in violation of public policy. Foley v. Interactive Data Corp., (1988) 47 Cal. 3d 654. Tameny Claims More recent cases seem to suggest otherwise. More recent caselaw provides that Tameny's claims may be maintained where the plaintiff was demoted or suspended without pay for a reason that violated public policy: "[A]n employee can maintain a tort claim against his or her employer where disciplinary action has been taken against the employee in retaliation for the employee's ‘whistle-blowing’ activities, even though the ultimate sanction of discharge has not been imposed." Garcia v. Rockwell Int'l Corp. (1986) 187 CA3d 1556, 1562 (disapproved on other grounds by Gantt v. Sentry Ins. (1992) 1 C4th 1083); see also Anderson v. Pacific Bell (1988) 204 CA3d 277, 283. Thus, technically speaking, one can maintain a Tameny claim based upon some adverse employment action other than termination, but whether or not one should is an entirely different story.

The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) is a powerful guardian against discrimination, expressly prohibiting discrimination based on an individual's religious creed, religious observance, and beliefs. This blog explores the significance of FEHA's commitment to preventing religious discrimination in the workplace. FEHA's Fundamental Principle One of the key tenets of this legislation is the explicit prohibition of discrimination based on an individual's religion. Expansive Definition of Religion FEHA takes a broad approach to the concept of religion. Its protection goes beyond traditional organized religions. A particular belief, observance, or practice is protected by the FEHA if it is sincerely held and occupies in the life of its possessor a place parallel to that filled by the God of those religions admittedly qualifying for the protection. The worker's beliefs, observances, and practices must occupy a place of importance parallel to that of traditionally recognized religions. A three-part test applies: A religion addresses fundamental and ultimate questions having to do with deep and imponderable matters (e.g., the meaning and purpose of life, theories of humankind's nature or its place in the universe, matters of human life and death, or the exercise of faith); A religion is comprehensive, consisting of a belief system as opposed to an isolated teaching; and A religion can be recognized by the presence of certain formal and external signs. Accommodating Religious Practices FEHA places an affirmative obligation on employers to reasonably accommodate the religious practices of their employees, provided that such accommodations do not create undue hardship ...
