Former Assembly chief of staff files wrongful termination suit

Working for public officials carries a significant amount of responsibility and pressure, as the public is quick to respond whenever there are allegations of impropriety. There are times when an employee may point out behavior that he or she finds disconcerting and, as a result, he or she may find that they no longer have a position in what may be considered retaliation. Recently, one man filed a wrongful termination suit against the California Assembly and the legislator whom he served.

Understandably, losing a job can have significant financial implications. When a job is lost as a result of discrimination, the experience can also be emotionally and psychologically traumatic. Discrimination in any form is wrong, but even in today's world, it still exists. In California and other states, laws are in place to protect workers from harassment and discrimination in the workplace. When an employee loses his or her job to discriminatory acts, a wrongful termination claim may be filed.

In one state alone, it employs an estimated 50,000 employees, and, as such, it was recently described as being "at home" in that state, which then opens the door for an employment discrimination case to proceed in federal court. The outcome of this case could have an impact on workers in California and elsewhere.
