WHAT IS THE AVERAGE SETTLEMENT FOR WRONGFUL TERMINATION IN CALIFORNIA?

There are many factors that determine the average settlement for wrongful termination in California. Generally speaking, wrongful termination settlements include past lost wages, future lost wages (after the termination until you find another comparable job) and losses you sustained due to emotional distress. Settlements also depend on the strength of the facts and whether the employer is able to pay.

Settlements tend to be more valuable when the wrongfully terminated employee has a higher hourly income or salary.

Each situation, however, should be evaluated based on its own merits to determine potential case value. Importantly, additional violations may be found that could enhance the value of the case including wage violations. For instance, if an employer did not pay overtime pay for overtime hours worked or failed to provide meal and rest breaks.

So each case should be determined on its own set of merits.
