When is termination a “wrongful termination” under California law?
The California Supreme Court held in 1992 that:
“While an at-will employee may be terminated for no reason, or for an arbitrary or irrational reason, there can be no right to terminate for an unlawful reason or a purpose that contravenes fundamental public policy.”
Gantt v. Sentry Ins. (1992) 1 Cal. 4th 1083.
