Was The Discharge Wrongful?

Depending on circumstances of the employment, employers may have the option of firing their employees with or without reason. However, it is illegal to terminate employment for the below reasons:

  • Discrimination due to disability, age, race, religion or gender
  • Sexual harassment
  • Retaliation for reporting violations of state and federal law

When an employee is fired for one of these reasons, the employer is guilty of wrongful termination or wrongful discharge, and the employee may be able to recover lost wages and benefits, and related damages. Such cases are very difficult to prove, however, especially when there is another reasonable explanation for the termination such as financial difficulties of the company. Any evidence that an employee was fired for an illegal reason must be thoroughly and consistently documented in order to build a successful case for wrongful termination.
