Obtaining and maintaining a job is important for residents in California and elsewhere. While it might be a long-term position, contract position or a temporary job, when individuals are hired, they have certain rights in the workplace. One of these rights is to not be terminated for an unlawful reason. Unfortunately, employees sometimes feel that they were fired or laid off unlawfully.

A wrongful termination could occur in a variety of ways. An employee could be fired for unlawful reasons, which include matters such as discrimination, sexual harassment or in retaliation for whistleblowing.
