Wrongful Termination

KHS represents both employers and employees in wrongful termination matters. California is an at-will employment jurisdiction, meaning that an employee can be fired at any time, for any reason, so long as that termination is not unlawful, or wrongful. What constitutes wrongful termination requires a legal analysis, but most often involves a protected status, such as race, gender, sexual-orientation, or national origin. Wrongful termination can also stem from whistle-blowing, failure to submit to sexual harassment, and a variety of other causes. The lawyers at KHS are experienced in analyzing, prosecuting, and defending wrongful termination matters from pre-litigation through trial.
