What constitutes wrongful termination?
Most employees are employed “at-will,” which means they can be terminated for any reason, with some exceptions. For example, you cannot be fired for your age, race, religion, disability, etc. These are protected classes. Other exceptions include employment contracts and being fired for military duty or taking a qualified medical leave. Some states have broader protections for workers in addition to the federal law.
Employers often do not openly admit they are firing you for the above prohibited reasons, so it is important to hire an experienced and knowledgeable employment attorney to investigate the circumstances of your particular case and ascertain whether any violations occurred. An attorney can also inform you of your rights under the federal law and the law within your specific state. Claims are time barred, however, and it is imperative that you reach out today if you feel you may have a claim for wrongful termination.
