It’s important to understand that not all dismissals are “wrongful,” legally speaking. Under state law, employers must respect certain rights that employee holds.

Know Your Rights
Employees are protected from wrongful termination by a variety of federal and state laws. For example, discriminatory firing based on protected characteristics (race, religion, disability, sex, etc.) is prohibited for employers that meet a minimum company-size threshold. In addition, your employee may have breached their employment contract with you if you were promised job security.
Our wrongful termination lawyers also handle cases where employees are fired or disciplined for exercising rights such as military leave, voting leave, family and medical leave, and jury duty leave, as well as whistleblowing. To learn more about your rights and determine whether yours have been violated, contact us today.
