About Wrongful Termination in New York

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:

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.
