Common Examples of Wrongful Termination
There are various factors behind a person’s firing that can amount to wrongful termination. Although private employers have the right to fire employees for a variety of reasons, they must do so within the confines of the law. It is illegal for employers in California to fire employers for any of the following reasons:
- Discrimination: Employers in California can’t fire an employee for reasons based on a person's age, race, sexual orientation, disability, national origin, religion or sex.
- Violation of Public Policy: Employers cannot fire an employee for not carrying out an illegal request or for filing a workers’ compensation, labor violation claim or health and safety violations.
- Retaliation: Employers can’t fire a worker for reporting illegal or unethical activities to the appropriate government agency or a person in a position of authority within the company or organization.
Wrongful Termination Damages
A successful wrongful termination lawsuit can result in compensation for the following damages:
- Back Pay: The wages the employee lost by the time a court issues a lawsuit judgment.
- Front Pay: The wages lost from the date of the lawsuit judgment until a future date to compensate them for the loss of the employment.
- Health Benefits: Defendants can recover the cost of health insurance benefits and other benefits they would have received from their employer if they were still employed.
- Injunctive Relief: Courts can order employers to take or cease specific discriminatory or harassing conduct.
