What Is Wrongful Discharge?

Wrongful discharge or termination refers to any unlawful reason behind breaching an employment contract, public policy or a specific law. There are several illegal elements that may play a role in your discharge:

  • Discrimination — Based on gender, race, age, sex, disability, religion, national origin, etc.
  • Retaliation — Your employer may retaliate against you if they find out you are a whistleblower who reported workplace violations such as:
    • Safety and health
    • Tax laws
    • Environmental policy
    • Health insurance
    • Food safety
    • Securities laws
    • Motor vehicle safety
    • Financial reform
  • Violation of public policy — Taking time off work for jury duty, voting, refusing to submit to a requested illegal act, whistleblowing, etc.
  • Breach of contract — If you were not an at-will employee and were fired for reasons other than what was stated in your contract, you may file a claim.

What Is an At-Will Employee & Why Does It Matter?

At-will employment is an arrangement in which the employee may quit at any time, and the employer may fire the employee for any reason that is not illegal. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, “At-will also means that an employer can change the terms of the employment relationship with no notice and no consequences. For example, an employer can alter wages, terminate benefits, or reduce paid time off.”

This means that your employer can do anything they want without telling you and without your permission, as long as it’s not illegal. As a result, you may be fired for vague or false reasons. Even though you voluntarily agreed to be an at-will employee, that doesn’t mean you should be terminated for something that isn’t your fault.

We can fight to prove that your employer illegally discharged you so you can receive rightful compensation.
