California is an at-will employment state, which means an employer can fire an employee for any reason if there is not an employment contract and the reason is lawful. If you believe you were fired for an illegal reason, it is important to speak with an experienced employment law lawyer as soon as possible.

What Qualifies as Wrongful Termination?
California workers are fired for a variety of illegal reasons. If you were terminated for any of these reasons, we encourage to speak to us about the steps to take next:
Discrimination: It is illegal for an employer to fire a worker based on the worker’s race, gender, age, sexual orientation or disability.
Sexual harassment: If a manager or supervisor makes repeated sexual comments or makes sexual advances and the worker rejects that behavior, it is illegal for the manager to fire that worker.
Retaliation: Workers are allowed to protest and resist unlawful activities like discrimination and harassment. Workers are also allowed to report, or blow the whistle, on employers who commit fraud or safety violations.
Constructive termination: If conditions or the environment at work are so terrible that the worker could not reasonably continue the job, then the worker may quit and sue for lost wages.
The Barron Law Corporation is serious about protecting employee rights in California. We welcome the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your potential legal claim.
