Types of Executive-Level Termination Cases
There are several types of executive-level termination cases that can arise, including:
- Breach of contract: If your employment contract was terminated before its expiration date, you may have a claim for breach of contract against your employer.
- Wrongful termination: If you were terminated in violation of public policy or in retaliation for engaging in protected activity, you may have a claim for wrongful termination.
- Severance negotiations: If you were terminated without cause, you may be entitled to severance pay or other benefits. An experienced employment lawyer can negotiate on your behalf to secure the best possible severance package.
- Non-compete agreements: If you have signed a non-compete agreement with your employer, an experienced employment lawyer can help you understand your rights and obligations under the agreement.
What Steps Should I Take As An Executive Who Has Been Terminated From Their Job In California?
If you have been terminated from an executive-level position in California, you may have legal options depending on the circumstances of your termination. Here are some steps you can take to achieve the best outcome for your case:
- Review your employment contract: If you have an employment contract, review it carefully to determine if your termination violated any of its terms. Look for provisions regarding termination, notice, severance pay, and any non-compete or non-solicitation clauses. If you believe your termination breached the terms of your contract, you may have grounds for legal action.
- Consider filing a wrongful termination claim: California is an at-will employment state, which means that employers can generally terminate employees for any reason or no reason at all, as long as it’s not discriminatory or retaliatory. However, if you believe that your termination was based on discrimination (e.g., based on your age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or another protected characteristic) or retaliation (e.g. because you reported illegal conduct by your employer), you may have a claim for wrongful termination.
- Consult with an employment lawyer: An experienced employment lawyer can help you evaluate your legal options and determine the best course of action based on your specific circumstances. An attorney can also assist you with negotiating a severance package or filing a legal claim against your former employer.
