Wrongful Termination

Discrimination is the key to a wrongful termination case. So, what is discrimination under the law?

It is illegal to treat an employee differently when it comes to any aspect of employment, such as: hiring; firing; rate of pay; benefits; assignment of work load; enforcement of company policies; etc.

The law protects employees from certain types of discrimination: Pregnancy, Age, Disability, National Origin; Race; Color; Religion, Sex, Genetic Information, Equal Pay; etc.

Sometimes the discrimination is not so obvious, such as a policy that applies to all employees but has the effect of punishing a certain group of employees, such as employees over the age of 40, or employees of a certain race, color, national origin, religion, sex, gender, disability, etc.

The law also protects against wrongful terminations due to:

  • Family Medical Leave Act Request
  • Unpaid Wages Request
  • Workers Compensation benefits requests;
  • Whistle-Blower or complaints about illegal activity
  • Discrimination complaints to HR or Management
