Wrongful Termination

To Law Enforcement, First Responders, and Female Executives:

Understanding Wrongful Termination:

Wrongful termination isn't just about being fired for something you didn't do. It's crucial to grasp that employers can make unfair decisions without them being legally considered wrongful terminations. What truly defines wrongful termination under the law is the motive behind it—the reason why an employer treats an employee differently, whether through firing, disciplinary action, or other means.

Legal vs. Illegal Motivations:

While employers are entitled to make certain decisions based on factors like family ties, personality clashes, or financial concerns, there are specific motivations that are deemed illegal. These include discrimination based on race, national origin, color, age, gender, disability, religion, complaints about unlawful acts, or the use of health insurance benefits, among others. It's essential to understand these distinctions to protect your rights.
