In Regards To Business Necessity Defense To Wrongful Termination

The California Supreme Court has held that to prove a wrongful termination an employee must demonstrate that the employer’s actions were detrimental and also that the employee was singled out for disadvantageous treatment as a result of his or her injury. If the employer can demonstrate that it’s actions were justified by the realities of doing business then no wrongful termination is proven.
