Understanding Wrongful Termination in Sherman Oaks

If you feel your employment has been terminated in violation of your civil rights, you may be entitled to recover damages. Under California law, wrongful termination occurs when an employer violates state or federal laws in terminating the employee or when the termination violates public policy.

It should be noted that only an employee may file a claim for wrongful termination. If you are an independent contractor, you may have a claim for breach of contract. The line between being categorized as an employee versus an independent contractor is often blurry and there may be multiple factors to consider. Contact Mancini and Associates to discuss your potential case.

Additionally, California is an “at-will” employment state, meaning an employee may leave their employment at any time and an employer may terminate the employee at any time, without cause.

Wrongful termination only arises if the employer has ended the employee/employer agreement for reasons that are in violation of the law.

What Qualifies as an Unlawful Reason to Terminate Employment in Sherman Oaks?

There are many state and federal laws regarding employment and protected classes. Grounds for wrongful termination may include but are not limited to:

  • Discrimination: Race, gender, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion, language, and other protected characteristics
  • Retaliation: Terminating an employee after they have engaged in protected activity
  • Whistleblowing: A form of retaliation, usually involving participation in the investigation or making complaints to government or law enforcement agencies about illegal conduct
