About Wrongful Termination and Retaliatory Discharge
Wrongful termination is a form of illegal retaliation by an employer. It occurs when an employer fires an employee for engaging in some form of "protected activity," such as reporting sexual harassment or participating in a
discrimination claim. The law protects employees who report illegal activity or misconduct by an employer or co-worker from retaliation. If an employer terminates an employee for reporting or threatening to report illegal or fraudulent conduct, the employee can file a retaliation claim against the employer.
