Employees in California have broad protections against wrongful terminations based on the factors listed below under the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). FEHA applies to employers who employ five (5) or more employees, but it excludes employees who are employed by their parents, spouse, or child, or a religious association or corporation not organized for private profit.
FEHA protects employees against wrongful termination by their employers in their hiring; discharging; discharging or selection for training programs that would lead to employment, or in the compensation or terms, conditions or privileges of employment; based on the employee’s:
• Physical Disability, Mental Disability, or Medical Condition
• Pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions
• Sexual Orientation
• Religious Creed
• Marital Status
• National Origin
