Wrongful Termination Attorney
Wrongful termination is considered the illegal discharge of an employee. Wrongful termination is illegal in accordance with both State and Federal laws. According to the law, a person cannot: be terminated for failing to commit an illegal act on behalf of his/her employer, be terminated for exercising a legal right, such as the right to partake in religious observations, or be terminated for reporting the illegal conduct of a fellow co-worker or employer.
Often times, wrongful termination occurs due to employer discrimination. An employee may be discriminated against due to his/her gender, race, national origin, sexual orientation, religion, age, or disability. When an employer discharges, lays off, or fires a person as a form of discrimination, it is considered wrongful termination. If a person is wrongfully terminated, he/she may be entitled to seek damages from his/her employer for things such as: lost income, lost standard way of living, and emotional suffering.
