What do I need to prove wrongful termination?

While most employment is “at will,” which means an employee may be fired at any time and for any reason or for no reason at all, there are some important exceptions. You may be able to prove wrongful termination if you have experienced:

  • Broken written promises, like contracts
  • Broken implied promises, including length of employment, history of promotions and positive reviews, and verbal promises of employment
  • Discrimination
  • Breaches of good faith
  • Violations of public policy, including denying time off for jury or military duty, withholding commissions or PTO pay
  • Retaliation
  • Fraud
  • Defamation
  • Whistle-blowing violations
