California State employee files wrongful termination claim

Though most employees have confidence in the security of their job, many do not. Employees who are unexpectedly fired may find it difficult to pay their bills or manage their expenses. If they feel that there is a valid reason why they should not have been let go, they may decide to file a wrongful termination claim against their former employer. One former California State University employee has done just that after he claimed that he was fired for research that contradicted a belief that many of his other colleagues share.

Though most employees are satisfied with the conditions of their jobs, there are times when some of them may witness bad practices on the part of their companies.

They may choose to file a wrongful termination suit against their former employer, which is just what two California employees have done.

While most employees in California are very happy with their jobs and like their bosses, many are not so lucky. The law is very clear that discrimination based on race, gender or other protected classes is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Even so, instances of employment discrimination can still occur. Recently, a former employee of the University of California, Los Angeles filed a lawsuit, alleging that she had been discriminated against and was unfairly terminated.

At times, workers may have disputes with their employers. Sometimes these disputes may be resolved by having a simple discussion while others are more complicated and result in a lawsuit.
