When Is a Termination Wrongful?
Wrongful termination is an umbrella term covering many kinds of improper conduct by an employer that leads to the loss of a job. Some situations and reasons for termination of employment may seem unfair, but that does not necessarily mean they are illegal or a viable cause for a lawsuit. However, many reasons that an employer may have to terminate an employee are unlawful.
A termination might be considered wrongful if an employer uses any of the following bases for the termination:
- The employee informing the authorities regarding what the employee reasonably believes to be an illegal activity by the employer — this is employer retaliation.
- Disability, age, gender, or race — this is employment discrimination.
- The employee refused to engage in sexual conduct with the employer or agent thereof — this is sexual harassment.
After 18 years fighting for the rights of employees, I have the knowledge and experience to hear the facts of your employment matter and help you determine whether you have a wrongful termination claim under the law.
