Types of Wrongful Terminations

Terminations may be considered wrongful if they involve:

  • Discrimination
    Employees are protected from discrimination because of their race, nationality, religion, sex, age, disability status, and more. If a company fires an employee because of any of these protected categories, the company may be in violation of state and federal laws.
  • Retaliation
    If an employee gets fired after reporting an illegal behavior, filing a workers’ compensation claim, or filing a claim against his or her employer due to sexual harassment, discrimination, or a hostile work environment, the employee may be eligible to file a claim for compensation.
  • Illness
    The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides employees with up to 12 weeks unpaid leave to recover from illnesses or injuries. If a company fires an employee because of an illness while he or she is on FMLA leave, the company may be in violation of the law.

Wrongful terminations require in-depth investigations to prove laws were broken. At Ponce Law, we have the experience to hold your employer accountable for your unfair treatment and wrongful termination.
