Wrongful Termination Archives

Constructive termination may be a matter for litigation

Ever since you pointed out that mistake your co-worker made, your work days turned into a nightmare. You were insulted, slighted and you believed your work was unfairly critiqued on a regular basis. It got to the point that you could not possibly endure one more day and you had to resign. This might be considered a constructive termination, and in California, you may be able to fight back.

Coach's wrongful termination case reaffirmed for now

When one works hard to accomplish his or her goals, it can be devastating when something happens to knock an employee out of the game.

She subsequently filed a wrongful termination suit against her former employer, the California State University system. A judge in the case recently reaffirmed a jury's verdict in her favor.

Tech companies facing age-related wrongful termination lawsuits

Many companies in California value older, more experienced employees, as they bring strong work ethic, valuable knowledge and skills to the table.

Because of this, many of the top technology companies in the U.S. are facing an increasing number of age-related wrongful termination lawsuits.

Exec sues E! for wrongful termination

When employees in California go through a debilitating illness, the last thing that most want to worry about is their job security. It may seem to be a given in today's professional workplace that when employees are required to go through necessary medical treatments, their employers will understand certain performance lapses and their job will be waiting for them when they can return to full time work. Recently, an article reported that an executive going through breast cancer treatment has sued E! News for wrongful termination after she was fired due to supposed lackluster performance.

Wrongful termination suit filed against Wells Fargo

A class-action lawsuit was recently filed against the bank Wells Fargo in California, alleging unjust firing.

This led many employees to open millions of bogus consumer accounts, which in turn led to investigations, lawsuits and fines from various federal and state authorities. Whenever a person is a victim of wrongful termination, he or she has the right to take legal action against his or her former employer.

What is constructive termination?

Most employers in California are diligent in their efforts to provide every employee with a working environment that is free from discrimination, harassment and retaliation.
