Fast growing marijuana company faces wrongful termination claim

In previous posts we have discussed that most employees in California are at-will employees, which means that they do not have a contract stating that they will be employed for a specific period of time. This means that they can quit or be fired at any time for almost any reason.

When quitting a job is really a wrongful termination

Most people in California are considered at-will employees. This means that they do not have an employment contract stating a specific time period for their employment. This means that the employee is not contractually obligated to stay for any specific period of time and can quit at any time, just as the employer can terminate the employee for any legal reason.

When does a work environment become hostile by law?

One of the aspects that people may not like about their is their boss. They may feel that the boss is overly demanding or does not recognize the work the person is doing for the company. However, others may feel harassed based on the conduct of their superiors or co-workers. In certain situations, this latter type of behavior could be illegal.

Former Moschino employee sues for wrongful termination

It has been a law for a long time that companies in California cannot discriminate against their employees, however, some companies still do it. This can come in many forms such as not hiring people, not promoting people, transferring people to less desirable positions or locations, firing certain employees and other actions based on the employee's race, age, gender, religion, disability or other protected classifications.

Employers must give proper notice for mass layoffs

There are ups and downs in any business in California. There are many factors that lead to these swings, but during the good times, companies may hire extra employees needed to meet the demands. However, if work slows down, they do not need the extra employees, and in many situations, cannot afford to pay all of their employees. In these situations companies may need to lay employees off.

Protecting employees' rights after a wrongful termination

People work in many different types of jobs here in California. Most of these people are considered at-will employees, meaning that the employees can quit at any time and employers can fire employees for many different reasons at any point in time. However, this does not mean employers can fire employees for any reason.

Wrongfully terminated employees must attempt to mitigate damages

There are different qualifications required for different jobs in California. People who do not have those qualifications most likely will not get a job. For instance in order to be an accountant one needs to be licensed and have passed certain tests in order to receive that license. If a person has not done this they do not qualify to be a certified public accountant. However, anyone that does meet the qualifications should have an opportunity to have a job in that field. Nothing besides their professional qualifications should be considered.
