Wrongful Termination

San Diego Wrongful Termination Lawyer

At-Will Employment Relationship

In California, most employment relationships are “at-will.” At-will means that employees can quit their job at any time and employers can fire employees at any time without cause. Employers are not required to provide employees with any type of verbal or written warnings. However, that does not mean that wrongful termination cannot happen in these situations. If there is evidence that you were fired because of your race, age, gender, or other discriminating factors, then you can file a claim to hold your employer accountable.

The wrongful termination attorney at AMartin Law in San Diego has represented many people who were unjustly let go from their job. We offer free consultations so that you can discuss the situation without any obligations. Contact us today to tell us your story and find out if you have a valid wrongful termination claim.

We handle most cases on a contingency fee basis. Call us at (619) 268-6585 to get started.

Termination Cannot Violate Public Policy

Although employers do not need a reason to fire employees, California law prohibits employers from firing employees for reasons that violate public policy.

Examples of public policy violations include:

  • Age discrimination
  • Race discrimination
  • Sex or gender discrimination
  • National origin discrimination
  • Sexual orientation discrimination
  • Medical or physical disability discrimination
  • Sexual harassment
  • Pregnancy discrimination

Additionally, employers cannot fire, discriminate or retaliate against employees for:

  • Reporting to jury duty
  • Whistle blowing
  • Reporting OSHA or health and safety violations
  • Reporting discrimination or sexual harassment
  • Being injured on the job
  • Making a workers' compensation claim

Proving that your termination occurred for these reasons is not always easy. You will need to point to specific instances that indicate your employer has discriminatory policies. This may require providing copies of emails or company announcements, finding coworkers who will corroborate your story, or proving that your employment was continuously affected by one of these factors. These are all things our knowledgeable San Diego wrongful termination lawyer can help you with.
