Understanding Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is dismissed from their job in a manner that breaches the terms of an employment contract, statutory provision, or company policy. Understanding what constitutes wrongful termination is crucial:

  • Violation of Federal and State Laws: An employee cannot be fired for illegal reasons, such as discrimination or retaliation for reporting harassment.
  • Breach of Contract: If the employment contract specifies conditions under which termination is allowable, dismissing an employee outside these conditions can be wrongful.
  • Violation of Company Policies: Termination procedures outlined in company policies or handbooks must be followed. Firing an employee without adhering to these procedures could be deemed wrongful.

Navigating wrongful termination claims requires careful consideration of the circumstances and applicable laws. Employees should be aware of their rights and seek proper legal advice if they believe they have been wrongfully terminated.
