Wrongful Termination Legal Issues
Wrongful Termination occurs when an employer either fires or lays off an employee for reasons that are unjust, against public policy or illegal. However, every state has adopted an "At-Will" employment doctrine, which generally allows an employer to fire or lay off an employee for any reason they deem fit. This can even include personality conflicts that seemingly have nothing to do with job performance. However, it is not uncommon for a former "at-will" employee to sue their employer for wrongful termination and be compensated.
