Most people have heard the term employment at will. This generally refers to the principle that an employee can be terminated for any reason or no reason. However, there are exceptions to at will employment where an employer may be helped liable for an unlawful or wrongful termination.
A termination for an improper reason or merely based on race, color, national origin, age, pregnancy, sexual orientation or gender or because an employee presented a complaint of illegal or unsafe conduct can support a claim of wrongful discharge. The exceptions to at will employment are numerous. Call the Rayburn Law Office to learn more about your rights.
