Signing that long-term contract is every worker’s dream. Most of the employees in California are “at-will” employees, and those lucky enough to receive a contract should work hard to preserve it.
In some instances, even employees who had a contract got terminated by their employer. The question that first comes to mind is “ How is that even possible, and is it legal to get terminated in such a way?”
If you got terminated while under contract, you should know what to do next. In case you have no clue what your next step should be, here are a few tips to get you started.
Define Your Contract
First of all, have you ever received an actual contract? If the answer is no, were you offered “a contract” or received a promise of employment from your employer after an interview? If your employer promised you work and also promised not to fire you unless “there is a good and valid reason”, the chances are that you may have been offered a contract. There are a lot of cases where a person was given an “oral contract” or where the contract was implied. If this is your case, and you believe that you did nothing wrong to deserve your termination, you should consult with an attorney. In the majority of cases, the court will uphold any oral contracts, even if they are based on limited conversations.
Were You Sexually Harassed?
