How do I know if I was wrongfully terminated from my job?

Most employment is at-will, and workers can be fired for any reason or no reason whatsoever. But that doesn't mean that wrongful terminations don't occur.

The first clue that you may have a wrongful termination case on your hands is the feeling that something fishy happened relating to the loss of your job. No matter what the circumstance, if you feel that you lost your job unfairly, you might want to carefully investigate the matter further.

Here are a few common wrongful termination red flags:

Discrimination-caused termination. If you faced mistreatment at work because of your race, color, national origin, religion, gender or disabled status, you might want to consider whether your termination was for discriminatory reasons. Perhaps your employer created a valid reason for termination, but the real reason was discriminatory in nature.

Sexual harassment. Many people are terminated wrongly as a result of a sexual harassment problem. These individuals may have reported the sexual harassment to a superior and then found that they were soon fired out of retaliation.

Termination in violation of an employment agreement, Whether the agreement is written or oral, if an employer and employee have an agreement about how and when the employee can be fired, these terms must be honored. An employer who terminates an employee in violation of an agreement could be liable for wrongful termination.

Termination after filing a complaint. Employees may also experience wrongful termination after they file any kind of complaint against their employers.

Whatever the circumstances of your wrongful termination, if you suspect that something wasn't right, our attorneys can review your situation to determine your legal rights and options.
