Different Types of Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination is one of the most common types of employment suits. There are different types of wrongful termination which are as follows:

  • Discrimination or harassment:- It is against the federal laws for employers to discriminate against their employees based on race, nationality, gender, age, religion, and disability.

  • Retaliation:- Employers cannot fire their employees in retaliation for things like reporting harassment, expressing health or safety violations, then being injured on the job, and refusing to participate in legal activities.

  • Breach of contract:- If the employee has a contract or employment agreement, then the employer cannot break the contract while firing the employee. These contracts set a limit or tie the hands of the employer while firing their employee.

  • Ignoring protected leave:- Federal and state laws protect employees from being fired based on family or medical leave. If the employer is having more than 50 employees then he/she cannot fire employees on having 12 weeks of leave per year.
