This is a general term referring to a firing without good cause. Although California is an “at-will” employment state, meaning an employer can fire you without cause, this generalization does not always apply. If you are a governmental employee or in a union, cause is required. If there has been an agreement that you will work for a specified period of time, cause will typically be required, while there are other exceptions to “at-will” as well.

One of the most recognized exceptions to “at-will” employment concerns a firing due to whistleblowing activities, refusal to participate in something you believe, in good faith, is unlawful, or where you are fired for discriminatory motives. Race discrimination, age discrimination, gender discrimination or objecting to sexual harassment are among the unlawful firings that are a violation of your civil rights. Similarly, retaliation for requesting overtime pay, rest or meal breaks may also be a basis for a wrongful termination lawsuit. Serving as a witness to unlawful conduct may also afford you protections from a wrongful firing.

If you are injured, are pregnant or require reasonable accommodation in the workplace or time off, firing or layoff under such circumstances may also provide a basis for a wrongful firing claim.
