You may have heard the term “wrongful termination” in a lot of situations. However, only certain types of termination are classified as “wrongful” under the law. A wrongful termination requires that you be fired for an illegal reason. Illegal reasons could include violation of antidiscrimination laws, violation of whistleblower laws, or breach of contract for example. If your termination was not the result of a legal or contractual violation, then you are likely employed at-will and may not have legal recourses for a termination that you consider unfair. If you consider having been wrongfully terminated, please contact our office.
