Wrongful Termination from Employment

If you have been terminated improperly the place of business has become a litigation battleground.

An employer may not fire, demote, harass, or otherwise retaliate against an individual for filing a charge of discrimination, participating in a discrimination proceeding, or otherwise opposing discrimination. 

A wrongful termination claim can be made under a few conditions. Legal conditions for an employee to make a wrongful termination claim against their employer may include:

  • Breach of contract
  • Discrimination
  • Refusal to participate in discrimination
  • Making a worker’s compensation claim
  • For being owed wages or overtime pay
  • Testifying against an employer when required by law
  • Taking leave for bereavement, illness, or disability

If an employee believes that he or she believes the termination was based on one or more protected characteristics, they may file a claim of wrongful termination against their employer.

Characteristics protected by the law:

  • Age
  • Race
  • Sex
  • National origin
  • Disability
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Color
  • Complaints about harassment or discrimination
