What Qualifies as Wrongful Termination?
In “at will” employment states, it is perfectly acceptable for companies to fire workers at any time, for any reason or for no reason at all. What they may not do is fire a worker for an illegal reason.
Illegal reasons for dismissal include:
Discrimination: It is illegal for employers to base firing decisions purely on a protected characteristic, such as:
- Age (if over 40)
- Sexual orientation
- National origin
- Gender identity and expression
Retaliation: Employers cannot use dismissal as a way to punish employees who engage in protected activities that the employer doesn’t approve of. Examples include:
- Reporting unlawful practices at the company
- Reporting unsafe work conditions
- Taking time off to vote or serve jury duty
- Taking family leave or medical leave
- Filing a discrimination or harassment complaint
Contract Violations: Any time the employee-employer relationship is governed by a contract, employers must follow the termination procedures and requirements outlined in the contract. If they do not, they are in breach of contract and this is grounds for a wrongful termination action.
