Wrongful termination and retaliation are serious issues that can have a major impact on workers in California. If you've reported your employer by filing a complaint with the California Civil Rights Department about discrimination, then you are protected by law from retaliation.
Under California law, it is illegal for an employer to terminate an employee for any discriminatory reason, or that violates a fundamental public policy. This means that an employer cannot fire an employee based on their race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or other protected characteristic. It also means that an employer cannot fire an employee for reporting illegal activity. If you report your employer for discriminatory practices, then you are protected from retaliation.
It's illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for engaging in protected activity. This means that an employer cannot take adverse action against an employee, such as demoting them or cutting their pay, because the employee has reported illegal activity, filed a complaint, or participated in a discrimination investigation.
