What constitutes a wrongful termination?

If you are terminated from your job, and the employer’s decision to terminate you was based on race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability, genetics, military status or domestic violence victim status, the termination may be unlawful.

It is also unlawful to fire a worker:

  • In violation of a valid contract.
  • Because a worker filed a workers’ compensation claim.
  • If the worker participated in a complaint under a civil rights law.
  • To avoid paying bonuses, benefits or other compensation that the worker has already earned.
  • To intimidate other employees.
