Wrongful Termination: What To Know
Many people mistakenly believe that wrongful termination is when an employer fires you without a good reason. Wrongful termination is a legal term that has a very specific meaning. Most employers are at-will employers, which means that they can fire a worker for just about any reason as long as it does not violate state or federal law. When an employer does fire someone in violation of the law, it is wrongful termination.
Some examples of wrongful termination include:
- Discrimination based on age, gender, race, disability, religion or nation of origin
- Retaliation for using the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim
- Retaliation for reporting a safety or labor law violation
- Retaliation over a wage and hour dispute
- Breach of employment contract
