You may have heard the term ““at will employment” but what does this actually mean? In this short video, employment attorney Lauren Abrams explains what at will employment entails.



At-Will employment in California is where you can quit at your own free will and an employer can terminate you at its own free will, but there are so many limitations. Some of the limitations are you can’t be terminated because you’re in a protected category.

And the list is very long on that. You can’t be terminated because you have a disability, or because you took maternity leave, or because you’re caring for a sick family member, or because you went out on jury duty. And it’s that whole list of protected classes. If you have been retaliated against for that reason or you feel like you’re being discriminated against, you need to put your complaint in writing.

Give that complaint to human resources.
