What is Wrongful Termination?
Most employees have “at will” employment agreements with their employers. This means that employees can leave, or be fired for any legal reason, or no reason at all.
However, even for at-will employees, an employer cannot fire anyone for reasons that violate the law, or that violate the employment contract. In cases where an employee is fired for reasons that violate the law, this can include reasons like discrimination, harassment, or even retaliation.
When this happens, we consider this wrongful termination.
