Termination After Relocation: California Law Protects Employees Fired from Distant Positions that were Falsely Advertised

The concept of at-will employment can often seem unfair. Many workers who feel they have been fired unjustly hope to take legal action against their former employers, but are disappointed to discover that they do not have sufficient grounds to bring viable lawsuits because the reasons for their terminations were not among those ordinarily proscribed by law. The idea that an at-will termination is non-actionable is all the more disheartening for an employee who moved a great distance to occupy his or her job position.

Overtime Compensation in California

California's basic overtime provisions are expressed in section 510 of the state Labor Code. Section 510 mandates that employees who work more than eight hours in a single workday, more than 40 hours in a single workweek, or up to eight hours on the seventh consecutive day of a workweek be compensated for this additional time at a rate of one and one half times their ordinary wage. Section 510 additionally provides that those who work more than 12 hours in a workday, or more than eight hours on the seventh consecutive day of a workweek be compensated at a rate of twice their ordinary wage.
