Wrongful Termination

Like many states, New York is an “at will” state, meaning that an employer can fire an employee for any reason. However, state, federal, and local laws prohibit firing employees for discriminatory reasons, in retaliation for exercising their rights or complaining about a problem, or in violation of a contract. When an employer illegally fires an employee, the terminated worker may have grounds for a lawsuit.

Common grounds for wrongful termination lawsuits include:

  • Discriminatory firing

  • Breach of contract

  • Termination after asserting wage and hour rights

  • Termination due to whistleblowing

  • Complaints about workplace safety issues

  • Termination after filing a workers’ compensation claim

  • Taking time off for military leave, FMLA, jury duty, military spouse leave, and other protected leave

In some situations, an employer may offer a fired employee a severance package. Many employees sign the agreement because they are worried about losing their income. However, these agreements are generally created to benefit the employer. You should always consult with an attorney before signing anything.

Our New York City wrongful termination attorneys will evaluate the strength of your claim and advise you of your options for getting your job back, negotiating severance pay, or filing a lawsuit against your employer.
