Wrongful Termination

Wrongful Termination

San Francisco Employment Lawyers on Your Side

The stress of losing your job is an enormous burden to deal with.  How will you feed your family? Who is going to pay the rent? Will you be able to find a new job? The State of California’s labor code says an employee is “at-will,” meaning your employer can terminate you at any time for any reason. However, your employer cannot terminate you based on a protected class.  The protected classes are:

  • Disability
  • Race, ethnicity and national origin
  • Age (over 40)
  • Sex
  • Pregnancy
  • Genetic information
  • Religion
  • Military service
