At Will Rule
Under the California labor code, an employment, having no specified term, may be terminated at the will of either party on notice to the other. This is known in California as the “at-will” employment law rule.
As enforced through the at-will rule, wrongful does not refer to the termination being mean or the boss singled me out because he did not like me. The termination must violate a protected class or fundamental public policy.
Filing a Suit
In order to file a successful wrongful termination lawsuit, an employee must follow all of the required administrative procedures mandated by California labor laws. In addition, the employee must prove that the termination violates public policy.
Our law firm accepts qualified wrongful termination lawsuits on a contingency fee basis, meaning that employees who are victims of wrongful termination never pay our labor lawyers unless we win them money.
There is a special type of wrongful termination claim called a qui tam action which focuses on how the wrongful termination was a violation of fundamental public policy as opposed to discrimination or other protected classes.
