Fired: Has employer broken the law?
Being dismissed unfairly can be a traumatic experience, not to mention financially damaging. It is well known that most people employed in the U.S. are subject to “dismissal at will.” However, this doesn’t mean that your employer has unrestricted freedom to fire you. In some circumstances, an employer may act unlawfully in dismissing someone. This is called “wrongful dismissal;” also known as “wrongful termination” or “wrongful discharge.”
