Even the best employment practices cannot totally avoid these lawsuits. California Labor Code section 2922 provides for "at-will" employment, which means that you can legally terminate an employee without giving a reason. There are exceptions. An employee with an employment contract may only be terminated with good cause. Also, you cannot terminate for a "bad" reason, including termination based on race, age (over 40), gender, sexual orientation, public policy violations, etc, etc, etc. You get the point. The exceptions swallow the rule, so before terminating an employee you need to speak to an employment attorney or qualified HR person. Because these cases are so potentially devasting, you must consider arbitration agreements for all employees, to avoid the risk of out-of-control jury verdicts.
