Wrongful termination claims are those claims that employees file against their employers when they believe that they have been unlawfully terminated. Contrary to what some people may believe, an employer cannot simply fire you for any reason. The government realizes that many people’s jobs are their livelihoods, so certain laws have been put into place to help protect people from being unfairly fired, putting them and their families in jeopardy of poverty when there was no valid reason for the termination.
Was the Termination Lawful?
One of the most essential factors in wrongful termination claims that will determine whether or not your claim is valid is whether the termination was indeed lawful. This will depend on numerous factors. If you were fired over something that was discriminatory in nature, then, of course, the termination wasn’t lawful. However, if you were fired for some other reason, then it may or may not have been legal.
When you obtain certain types of jobs, you might have to agree to a set of employee policies. If you signed an employee handbook or other employee policy agreement and then you broke some of those policies, then the termination could be lawful. However, in order for the termination to be lawful, the policies must be lawful to begin with. If you’re not sure if they were or not, then the best thing to do is to simply contact an attorney.
