California is an "at-will" state with regard to employment. That means that either the employer or the employee has the right to terminate the relationship at any time, provided that the reason for the termination is not against state or federal law or in violation of the terms of an employment contract. Many people believe that they have a right to keep their job, perhaps because they have had the job for a long time, or because they have good performance records, or because they have not done anything wrong. These are not necessarily valid legal reasons. Careful analysis of relevant law is important, so you should consult an experienced attorney to see if you have a claim.
The employment relationship is dynamic and influenced by many factors, including the national and international economic climate, changes in technology, changes in social trends, and a vast number of other factors. It is not uncommon for an entire industry to virtually shut down when technology causes it to be undermined, or when social changes bring new trends. Employees need to be vigilant and ready for change when circumstances demand it.

EASY ACCESS, PERSONALIZED SOLUTIONS, CLIENT APPROVAL BEFORE FINAL SETTLEMENT
Wrongful termination means termination in violation of an employment contract or employment law. The important thing to understand is that there is a difference between "unfair" and "illegal." What is unfair or impolite may not always rise to the level of being illegal. Civil rights violations such as discrimination by race, color, national origin or religion are always wrongful motives for terminating an employee, and employees have a number of options for dealing with such a situation.
