A wrongful termination claim is when is when an employee files in a court of law for believing of being unjustly or illegally dismissed from their job. Wrongful termination claims include the following:
- An alleged violation of federal or state antidiscrimination laws
- Oral and written employment agreements/contracts
- Labor laws
In most states within the United States, employment is considered “at will,” which meaning that employers neither need to have a reason to dismiss and employee or provide an advance notice of termination.
