California is an At-will State: How Does That Affect Your Claim?

Navigating the employment landscape in California, an “at-will” state, can sometimes feel like walking a tightrope. While employers have a broad scope regarding hiring and firing, it is crucial to understand when their actions might cross a line. Here are some real-life scenarios to illustrate the concept and when to contact our employment law attorney.

Scenario 1: Dismissed Following a Concern

You voice concerns about a malfunctioning office heater. A week later, you are let go due to “budget cuts.” While this might be a simple business decision, it could also be veiled retaliation.

Scenario 2: New Dress Code Post-Religious Observation

You start wearing a religious pendant, and suddenly, there is a new strict dress code. Employers in California can impose a dress code, but that should not target a specific community only. For instance, if the dress code is only for Muslims, you have a case.

Scenario 3: Shift Change After Casual Age Remarks

Some younger coworkers jest about “old-school” ways after you share a story. Soon, your shift changes to less favorable hours. It could either be routine scheduling or might suggest age bias.

Scenario 4: Replaced After a Medical Leave

After a few days off for medical reasons, you return to find someone else handling key aspects of your job. Your employer can legally have a temporary delegation, but it could be unethical if it hints at impending termination.

Being an at-will employer does not give someone the right to practice illegal or unethical behavior/actions. If you suspect wrongful termination, discrimination, or other workplace issues, give our attorneys a call at 310-929-2190.

California Has Strict Deadlines that Govern Workplace Claims

“If you have a workplace claim, time is of the essence.” According to the law, employment claims have strict time frames within which they must be filed. Missing these deadlines (statute of limitations) can mean forfeiting your right to pursue a claim.

We are here to make sure you take action in a timely manner. Regardless of the complexity of your case, our attorneys can help you file a complaint with the right government authority.

Wage & Hour Disputes

Does your employer owe you unpaid wages? Are you not being paid for overtime? Perhaps you are fighting for the wages you are entitled to receive? Hershey Law in Los Angeles offers a deep understanding of employment law. Additional to wage and hour laws, lunch break law violations commonly occur in California.


Discrimination happens when an employer or supervisor treats one person differently than another based on protected characteristics such as race, color, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, religious beliefs, gender identity, and age. Gender discrimination can also be in the form of offering less pay to a woman.


Harassment lawsuits are often the product of discrimination, stalking, malicious behavior, and other forms of harassment. Usually, workplace harassment cases target race, color, national origin, ancestry, gender, religion, religious practice, age, disability, or sexual orientation.


A ‘whistleblower’ exposes information within a company or organization that is illegal, fraudful, unsafe, illicit, or abusive. The federal government and many states have laws protecting whistleblowers from retaliation for filing a claim or reporting a violation.

Wrongful Terminaiton

Individuals are too often fired or terminated illegally without reason. At Hershey Law, we offer free consultations for employment law, discrimination, and wrongful termination cases in Los Angeles & Southern California to help you receive what may be owed.


Delivered in various forms, retaliation is any adverse employment action unlawfully taken against an employee including, but not limited to: Termination, Demotion, Performance Improvement Plans, Write-Ups, Change in Schedule, Reduction of Hours…

"I had such a pleasant experience working with everyone at Hershey Law. Taking the step to hire a lawyer can feel intimidating and daunting but from the first call I had with Brennan, he put my mind at ease and I could tell he truly cared. The process was smooth from start to finish. I am very happy with the outcome and I can't thank the team enough for being so kind, communicative and transparent!!"

I am very thankful and happy that I followed reviews in choosing Hershey Law as my lawyers! Being injured, I couldn't drive and Brennan came and met me at my house. He made me feel comfortable, taken care of and relieved a lot of stress from my incident. Even with all we've/are living through with the pandemic and everything else 2020 has brought, my care, health and case never suffered nor did I feel neglected. They were always available to answer my questions. It was great to deal with a local law firm where I felt personally taken care of. Jonny was a great lawyer and helped me through the whole case. The office staff...Jesse, Santiago and Blanco were a pleasure to deal with!

"I had a great experience working with Brennan and the Hershey Law team. I was in a bad car accident and had bad PTSD from it, they took care of everything for me and answered my calls and texts at all hours of the day and made me feel extremely cared for. They fought for me and I ended up with a very generous settlement. Excellent experience!"
