Post When You Should Talk To Wrongful Termination Attorneys?

If you've been fired recently, you might be wondering whether you can file for legal claims against your employer. Most fired employees don't file for claims, as employees are often presumed to work "at will.Ē

This means they can quit at any time, and they can be fired at any time. But you must be aware of the wrongful termination and even consult a few wrongful termination attorneys to consider your case.

What is Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful termination means to fire or terminate an employee because of an illegal reason, such as:

Discrimination: it is illegal for an employer to fire an employee because of their race, color, religion, national origin, disability, age, or genetic information. State and local laws even protect additional characteristics, like sexual orientation, marital status, and gender identity.

Retaliation: An employer cannot fire an employee because they employee complained against some illegal behavior, like workplace safety issues, harassment, discrimination, wage and hour violations, etc.

Violation of public policy: In many states, it's illegal to fire an employee for complaining against certain violations like exercising a legal right, refusing to commit an illegal act, or reporting wrongdoing.
