What does LP stand for? Loss Prevention?
If so, who is your actual employer (not the specific name but what do they do)?
I was just wanting to make sure it wasn't any type of governmental agency because the law is different as to them.
Unfortunately, California (like most other states) is an employment at will state which means an employer can terminate you at any time and for any reason other than one that is illegal like race, age, gender, etc.
Yes, unfortunately in an employment at will state an employer doesn't have to even be correct in the reason that they give for terminating you.
Morally it would be wrong but it is legal for them to do that and they couldn't be sued for wrongful termination.
You're very welcome and I do wish you the best on this.
If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. While I wish I could tive good news, unfortunately it doesn't always work out that the correct answer is one that is in your favor as I'm sure you understand. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow up questions in this thread. I want to be sure that all of your questions are answered.
You can ask but they don't actually have to show it to you until a lawsuit is filed.
