Another fault has been many bosses' ability to dismiss employees at will and without good reason. Fortunately, California's labor codes protect employees against wrongful termination.

What factors do courts look at in a constructive dismissal case?

"Constructive dismissal" happens when an employer creates a work environment that is so intolerable that it forces the employee to quit.

For example, the employer wants to terminate a worker because they are a member of a specific race but wants to avoid an accusation of discrimination or wrongful termination.

And this is why it's so distressing and unfortunate when someone loses his or her job as a direct result of aging. It's also a violation of federal age discrimination laws.
