What Is Wrongful Termination?
California describes a “wrongful termination” as any job termination that violates a public policy. Public policies are most often the policies included in federal and state laws. Most often, wrongful terminations occur when an employee complains about conduct violating a federal or state law, and the complaint contributes to the termination. In other cases, a worker discusses the employer’s compliance with certain laws believed to be part of federal or state law, and the discussion contributes to the worker’s termination. Wrongful terminations include forced, or required, resignations.
