Customer Question

I am going through a divorce. My husband and I own a business in which we are 50/50 shareholders.
My husband's daughter works for us as a manager. She is not staying neutral in our divorce. Although, I have asked her to & she claimed she would.
She has overstepped her boundaries by:
1) Attending my husband's appointments with his attorney.
2) Getting involved in our personal and business banking and finances.
3) Changing my husband's beneficiary on his life insurance (paid by the business) putting herself in my place.
4) Changing mine and also my husband's personal banking information, so that it is mailed to her house.
5) Attempted to attend a meeting with our attorneys and a forensic accountant I hired. I texted her and told her not to come. She came, but sat in the outside office.
6) Is not following our usual processes, but working for her Dad during business hours. Giving unauthorized raises to employees..etc.
My son also works for us, but has stayed neutral and is conducting business as usual.
Can I fire her? We are in California
Thanks,
Judy Gillespie

Yes you can fire her but my fear is that she is going to retaliate with a wrongful termination claim just to complicate matters.

A better approach would be to file an injunction to ask the judge to limit her involvement in the case and to prevent your ex spouse from allowing her from interfering in your case.
