Understanding At-Will Employment in California

At-will employment is a legal concept that exists in many states, including California. It refers to an employment relationship where the employer or the employee can terminate the employment at any time, for any reason, without providing a specific cause or notice. In other words, both parties have the freedom to end the employment relationship without facing legal consequences.

Under at-will employment, an employer can dismiss an employee for reasons such as poor performance, violation of company policies, or even without providing a reason at all. Similarly, an employee is free to leave their job without giving a specific reason or notice period.

Additionally, exceptions to at-will employment exist through employment contracts, collective bargaining agreements, or certain public policy considerations. These exceptions may provide additional protections to employees and restrict the ability of employers to terminate employment without cause.

  • Wrongful Termination
    Under no circumstances can an employee be fired for an illegal reason – at-will or not.
  • Sexual Harassment
    Every day people experience some sort of sexual misconduct that violates federal and state laws that are in place to protect them. If this should happen to you, we can help you assert your rights.
  • Retaliation
    It can be an emotionally challenging experience if you were fired, subjected to a reprimand, or endured another negative consequence at work.
  • Wage & Overtime Violations
    Federal and state laws entitle you to a minimum wage and overtime pay when you work beyond a certain number of hours in a day or overall workweek.
  • Disability Discrimination
    Despite federal and state laws that expressly forbid discrimination against people for their disabilities, it’s unfortunately common for employers to engage in such behavior.
  • Breach Of Contract
    If you're a permanent employee with a consistent agreement or an independent contractor who works under new contacts, you can be protected when your employer fails to uphold their end of the bargain.
  • Age Discrimination
    Employers whose policies or other employees who engage in age discrimination can be held liable for violating the victim’s rights and paying damages as fair and just compensation.

Move Forward in Your Career & Life

It can be confusing to know who to turn to for help when your employer violates your rights at work. Not all employment law attorneys are cut from the same cloth – some can be overly stuffy and rigid while others can be too casual to be taken seriously.

At Gould Law Firm, we like to think we strike a balance on that spectrum to provide service that can inspire confidence without sacrificing a personal touch for each client. We also won’t unnecessarily throw legal jargon at you to gain your trust – we believe that can be accomplished by explaining everything in plain English so you really know what’s going on.

It can be hard to choose where you get employment law services in Santa Ana, but at The Gould Law Firm, we can offer a free consultation to help you get a peek at how we may be able to help.
