At-Will Is Not An Excuse For Wrongful Termination
California is an at-will employment state. This means that an employer can fire you for any reason or no reason at any time. However, some laws and regulations are in place to protect people from getting fired due to discrimination. For example,
- An employer cannot fire an employee because of their race, gender, or age.
- An employer cannot fire someone by violating an existing or implied employment contract.
- And, finally, an employer cannot fire an employee if they are a whistleblower.
