If you are fired and your termination violated a state or federal law, or breached a contract you had with your employer, your termination may have been illegal and your employer may be liable to you for damages.

The most common ways for a termination to be unlawful is if you were fired because of your membership in a protected class, or if you were fired for your protected conduct.

Most employment is “at will” employment, meaning an employer can end your employment at any time for any reason. Similarly, employees are generally free to leave employment for any time and for any reason.

An important exception to “at will” employment are laws which protect employees from unlawful discrimination or retaliation.

If you have been unlawfully fired or if your employer has breached a contract with you, you may have a legal claim. You can schedule a call with Klein Munsinger or complete this short form and we will contact you.
