How to tell if you've been wrongfully terminated from work

Wrongful termination is still a problem at places of employment throughout California and the rest of the country. Even though there are laws banning different reasons why employers can fire their employees, companies still thin their payroll by using these reasons. Let's take a look at the reasons for wrongful termination in today's post.

Do you still get your pension after getting fired?

You plan to use your pension to retire. You've been planning on it for decades; it is one of the main reasons that you took this job in the first place. It's a very good pension that should allow you to maintain an enviable lifestyle even after you quit working, no matter what happens with the rest of your savings and investments.

Employers are prohibited from discriminating against potential workers due to appearances or physical health, and employees who require assistance to work may expect management's help in engaging meaningfully with a job.

New hires in California receive anti-abuse guidelines

There are few events in life that require more rest and rebuilding than an instance of abuse or violence. Victims of dangerous behavior or discrimination, at home or in employment, have a right to an accepting workplace where laws are observed for the safety of its workers.
