California’s employment laws are among the most pro-employee laws in the country. Employee separations – both voluntary and involuntary – carry risks in California – administrative actions and lawsuits. And, relying on an employee’s “at-will” status is not a guarantee of success against a former’s employee’s wrongful termination lawsuit. All employee separations, whether an individual employee or a mass layoff, must be carefully thought through in advance and carried out with equal measures of tact and firmness. Offer letters, employee handbooks, personnel files, and severance agreements require serious consideration and, if needed, updating, because employee separation is a serious thing in California.
