Why Can’t I Terminate My Employee for An Unexcused Absence


Recent decision remind employers about termination pitfalls.

The California Court of Appeals’ recent decision in Bareno v. San Diego Community College is a good reminder for employers about the pitfalls of terminating an employee based on a “technical” policy violation and how easy it is for an employee to put an employer on notice that the employee is taking a protected California Family Rights Act leave.
