The Truth About Wrongful Termination Claims

The law regarding wrongful termination can be confusing for both employees and employers. Employers need to understand that they cannot simply fire employees for any and every reason. There are strict laws and regulations around hiring and firing, and violations of these laws can result in serious trouble for employers.

Employees, on the other hand, need to realize that not every firing is a case of wrongful termination. Poor performance, poor attendance, failing a drug test and many other reasons are perfectly legal reasons to fire an employee. Wrongful termination, on the other hand, can be a result of discrimination, sexual harassment, or retaliation for an employee blowing the whistle on the employer’s illegal activity.
