Employers have a right to terminate the employment of any employee, just as employees have the right to resign from a job they no longer want to do. However, an employer may not terminate a person’s employment for unlawful reasons such as discrimination or retaliation. A person who is unlawfully terminated from their employment may be entitled to compensation for damages they suffer because of their unlawful termination.

Constructive Termination

Sometimes, even when an employee is not directly terminated by their employer, they may still have a wrongful termination claim based on constructive termination. Constructive termination in law refers to a situation where an employee quits their job because their employer has created a hostile work environment that forces them to quit. This is an unlawful termination in the eyes of the law.

To succeed on a claim based on constructive termination, the victim must prove that they were forced to leave their job for reasons that violate public policy. For example, an employer’s violation of wage and hour laws would be a violation of public policy. The victim must prove the following elements of their claim:

  • They were an employee of the defendant employer
  • They were subjected to working conditions that violated public policy, such as being required to work in excess of the legally allowed number of hours per day or per week
  • The employer intentionally created or knowingly permitted these working conditions
  • These working conditions were so intolerable that a reasonable person in the same position as the victim would have had no choice but to resign
  • The victim actually resigned because of the working conditions
  • The victim was harmed, and the working conditions were a substantial factor in causing the victim’s harm

An experienced wrongful termination attorney in Aliso Viejo can assess your case and determine if the adverse working conditions you suffered sufficiently meet the requirements to prove that your constructive termination was wrongful.
