What is Wrongful Termination in California?
A wrongful termination (or wrongful discharge) of an employee in California occurs when a person is fired for an illegal reason, such as a discriminatory reason (on the basis of race, sex, pregnancy, disability, religion, etc.) or a retaliatory reason, or another reason that is in violation of public policy. If you are an employee who was wrongfully terminated in California, you have rights. Among those rights is the right to file a civil action against your employer and recover money compensation for your lost wages and emotional distress. In some cases, employee can get punitive damages that punish and make an example out of the employer, as well as the employee’s attorney’s fees for bringing the lawsuit.

What is a Constructive Termination in California?
Constructive termination (or discharge) in California means that an employee can still file a lawsuit against his/her employer for wrongful termination even when the employee was not actually terminated or fired – when the employee quits or resigns. This happens when the employer’s actions essentially force the employee to resign by leaving the employee no choice but to quit his/her job.
