Wrongful Termination

The public policies underlying the California Fair Employment and Housing Act permit a person who is fired from her job because of her disability to sue her employer for wrongful termination in violation of public policy. Only employers of 5 or more persons are subject to this tort.

A claim of wrongful termination may be filed in a California State Superior Court (a trial court) and tried before a jury. A victim of a wrongful termination can recover compensatory damages (consisting of lost wages and damages for emotional distress), punitive damages, and court costs.

Claims of wrongful termination are often brought with claims of disability discrimination. However, unlike disability discrimination claims, a victim of wrongful termination in violation of public policy need not complain to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing before filing a lawsuit.

The statute of limitations for a claim of wrongful termination is two years.
