Wrongful Termination

Understanding Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination refers to the unlawful dismissal of an employee that violates federal, state, or local laws, as well as employment agreements. Understanding wrongful termination is not just about knowledge; it’s about empowering yourself with the tools to protect your career, rights, and dignity. At Shaumyan & Derbarseghian LLP, we recognize the pivotal role that awareness plays in addressing the injustices of wrongful termination. 

Types of Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination can manifest in various ways, including:

  1. Violation of Anti-Retaliation Laws: Employers are prohibited from firing employees for engaging in legally protected activities, such as reporting workplace violations, participating in investigations, or filing complaints.
  2. Violation of Anti-Discrimination Laws: Terminating an employee based on protected characteristics like race, gender, religion, disability, or age constitutes a violation of anti-discrimination laws.
  3. Violation of Employment Agreements: Employers who breach the terms of an employment contract, including implied agreements, can be held accountable for wrongful termination.
  4. Violation of Harassment Laws: If an employee is terminated as a result of reporting harassment or discriminatory behavior, it’s considered retaliation and constitutes wrongful termination.
  5. Violation of Whistleblower Laws: Employees who blow the whistle on illegal activities within their organization are protected from retaliation. Wrongful termination of a whistleblower is prohibited by law.
