Wrongful termination in violation of public policy happens when an employee is illegally terminated for reasons that are morally or ethically wrong or repugnant. In California, if you have been terminated due to your race, sex, national origin, disability, or age, then you are considered a victim of wrongful discharge. If this happens to you, you definitely deserve to be compensated for your damages, lost benefits and even for emotional pain and suffering and other losses against your erring employer.
Generally, the law permits employers to fire employees for no reason. This is known as the "at will" principle governing employer-employee relationship in California. However, one exception to the "at will" principle is being let go from work for reasons that violate laws which are intended to protect the public, like: sexual harassment; violation of state and federal anti-discrimination laws; violation of whistle blowing laws; and violation of collective bargaining laws. If you believe that you have been illegally terminated, then you should provide proof to overcome the presumption of "at will" employment arrangement. There are established fundamental laws that protect you against these violations, which include The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), which makes it an unlawful employment practice for an employer, because of age, to discharge the person from employment.
