With the right attorney who understands wrongful termination laws, wrongful termination cases don’t need to be daunting. For exceptional legal representation, trust us.
How Do You Tell It’s A Wrongful Termination
Like most states, Nevada obeys “at-will” employment laws. Employer and employee have the right to terminate employment at any moment without notice or reason without breaking the wrongful termination laws. Employers can fire employees for any reason, or none at all, under at-will laws. This can make it harder to prove a wrongful termination case. The at-will doctrine is not without limitations. Employers cannot terminate an employment relationship in the ways below.
- In violation of federal or state laws.
- By a breach of an employment contract.
- Based upon discrimination against employees for their age, race/sex, gender, disability, and genetic information.
- Harassment that is based on a protected class.
- To retaliate for protected practices such as whistleblowing.
An employer could legally be bound by an employee handbook if it has one. If an employee handbook outlines job security and termination procedures, and if the employer fails to follow these guidelines, it could be considered wrongful termination and breaking the wrongful termination laws. The wrongful discharge could also be proven by an oral agreement securing job security.
