Wrongful Termination Lawyer in Los Angeles, California
Wrongful termination, also known as wrongful discharge, occurs when an employer fires or discharges an employee in a way that violates the employee’s legal rights. California is an at-will work state, and this restricts the employees’ ability to bring wrongful termination suits against their employers, even when an employment contract is involved. In order to successfully pursue a claim of wrongful termination, evidence of more than just unfair treatment is required.
