In California, unless expressly specified otherwise, all employment is considered “at will.” That means that an employee can quit his or her job at any time and, conversely, the employer may elect to terminate the employee’s employment at any time, for no particular reason. This policy, however, does not protect an employer’s right to award promotions or terminate employees based on prejudices held against a particular race, gender, or other non-work-related personal attribute.
Employment disputes involve very complex federal and state laws which often change just as politics do. Many employers may find it difficult to stay in compliance with these changing laws and employees often times don’t fully understand the full extent of their rights under these laws.
The employment lawyers at Webb Law Group, APC have provided solutions to both employers and employees who have questions about their rights, compliance, legal challenges and disputes. Our San Diego employment law practice areas include:
• Employment discrimination and harassment
• Class action and wage claims
• Counseling and Advice
• Medical and family leave disputes
• And last but not least, wrongful termination
Wrongful termination disputes commonly arise either when demonstrable discrimination is a factor, or when the employer and employee have signed a contract requiring certain job performance for a certain period of time, for a specified compensation. In such circumstances, employers may only terminate employees for “just cause.” Webb Law Group has successfully represented numerous employers and employees in such matters.
