Employees in California are presumed to be at-will employees. At will employment can be terminated with or without good cause, or even a reason for that matter. However, employee rights are protected by many laws, including the California Labor Code, the California Government Code, the California Business & Professions Code, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act – among others. These laws help employees secure justice and fair compensation when fired for reasons that violate public policy. The wrongful termination in violation of public policy laws can be complex, and it may not always be obvious if the employee has a case. A lawyer for wrongful termination can help employees understand their rights, and see if they have a case.
