Wrongful Termination

California is an "at-will" employment state, meaning employers can generally fire employees for any reason, or for no good reason at all.

However, there are very specific exceptions to this rule. Employers may not fire employees based on:

  • Race, religion, age, national origin, ethnicity, sex or sexual orientation, and other protected characteristics
  • Pregnancy, disability or sexual harassment
  • Retaliation for asserting one's rights, "whistleblowing" or reporting unlawful acts

If your employment has been terminated for any improper reason, the attorneys at Winton Strauss Law Group, P.C., are here to help you explore your legal options. We provide experienced employment law representation to employees and employers throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
