Examples of Wrongful Termination

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from dismissing an employee based on their race, gender, age, disability, religious beliefs, pregnancy, national origin, or veteran status. A termination might also be wrongful if it is made for any of the following reasons:

  • Discrimination
  • Retaliation for filing a complaint or blowing the whistle on company misconduct
  • Trying to organize a union
  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim
  • Demanding unpaid wages
  • Taking time off under the federal Family and Medical Leave Act

Employees who believe they have been wrongfully terminated may be able to seek compensation for their financial losses through the legal system. Depending on the circumstances and their preferences, they could get their old job back or recover the money they need to move on with their lives.
