Wrongful termination, wrongful dismissal, or wrongful discharge are terms in law used to describe a situation where an employee’s employment contract is terminated wrongfully by an employer. For a termination to be deemed wrongful, it must breach one or more terms in the employment contract, a rule/s or a statute provision in employment law.
The laws governing wrongful termination vary depending on the terms in individual employment contracts as well as the laws and policies in a given jurisdiction. For instance, the laws governing wrongful termination in Los Angeles may be different from the laws in other states in the US. As a result, you need a Los Angeles wrongful termination lawyer to handle a wrongful termination case in BAKERSFIELD.
Although the laws governing wrongful termination vary, the primary forms of dismissal are generally the same regardless of jurisdiction. Being terminated because of the following may constitute wrongful dismissal;
If your employer terminates your employment because of your race, religion, age, nationality, gender or sexual orientation (in some jurisdictions including BAKERSFIELD), such termination is deemed wrongful.
Your employer can’t dismiss you simply because you filed a discrimination case or participated in investigations that aren’t in their best interests, i.e., participating in investigations for discrimination. Retaliation is prohibited in civil rights law in the US.
Termination for being a whistleblower also qualifies as retaliation. An employee shouldn’t be fired for reporting an employer who has violated a law. The US has a whistleblower law that has over 20 statutes protecting employees who risk termination for reporting violations in workplaces. This law is applicable in the safety and health industry, airline industry, consumer product industry, commercial motor carrier industry, food safety industry, pipeline industry, nuclear industry, railroad, and maritime industries among other industries deemed “sensitive”.
