What Is Wrongful Discharge?
If the employment is at will, an employee may be terminated for any reason or no reason at all, as long as applicable employment laws and antidiscrimination laws are not violated. An employee may be wrongfully discharged if an employer violates a public policy, federal law or state law. Employees are protected by employment laws, antidiscrimination laws, privacy laws, whistleblower laws, workers' compensation laws and corporate ethics laws.
If you feel you have been wrongfully discharged, you may have a legal claim against your former employer. If you believe you have been discriminated against because of your race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, or disability, or believe that you have been discriminated against because of opposing a prohibited practice or participating in an equal employment opportunity matter, you may file a charge of discrimination with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
