Employers May Be Liable for Employee Resignations

When evaluating potential liability for employment-related claims, employers often focus on terminated employees; after all, we tend to describe them generally as “wrongful termination” claims. However, a pair of recently published appellate decisions involving the same employer illustrate ways in which employees may bring “wrongful termination” claims despite the lack of an employer-initiated termination (Ortiz v. Dameron Hospital Association, No. C081091 (Cal Ct. App. July 17, 2019); Galvan v. Dameron Hospital Association, No. C081092 (Cal. Ct. App. July 17, 2019) (Dameron Hospital cases)).
