Typically, a business can fire its employee at will. However, a business is prohibited from firing an employee based upon his or her protected class, in retaliation for whistleblowing or in breach of a contract. Our employment lawyer helps businesses establish protective termination practices and we advocate for their right to fire their employees for just cause.

"I am a retired lawyer and an inactive CalBar member. I contacted Mr. Gunter, acting as a business consultant for a small business, regarding a lawsuit against that business within his specialty of employment and labor law. The issues were wrongful termination and Wage-Hour Law violations. I cannot recommend Mr. Gunter highly enough. The results were very favorable."
