Top 10 Wrongful Termination Articles

Some people have a knack for quitting a job in style. For instance, a flight attendant announced that he quit his job over the plane’s public address system, grabbed two beers, and then exited the plane by deploying the evacuation slide and sliding down it.

Getting fired, however, is not quite as glamorous. While employers often have legitimate reasons for firing employees, sometimes employees are wrongfully terminated. "Wrongful termination" usually occurs when an employer either (1) terminates an employee in a manner that violates an employment contract; or (2) terminates an employee for an unlawful reason. Here are the top wrongful employment articles:
