Employees fall into two categories…either an “employee at will” (most of us) or an employee with a contract: for example, a union member under a collective bargaining agreement. In either instance, there are times an employer might decide to fire an employee when the employer has no legal right to do so. Often employers terminate employees in retaliation for exercising a legal right (example: filing a workers’ compensation claim) or because of the employee’s age, gender or race. Employers will almost always assert the firing was for some other “legitimate” reason, i.e. a reduction in work force, personality issues, etc. We all know the truth. Fight back!
