Frequently asked questions
Can I sue an employer for wrongful termination?
Yes, but keep in mind that the majority of American workers are at-will employees, which means they can be let go for any reason or no reason at all. That being said, you are protected from termination if you are fired for illegal or unlawful reasons. This includes terminating you:
- Based on a person’s civil rights (e.g., because you are of a certain race, religion, or sexual orientation)
- In response to a person reporting unlawful behavior, such as sexual harassment, wage and hour violations, whistleblower whistleblowing, and so on.
- In violation of your employment agreement or contract.
How long does it take to settle a wrongful termination case?
The legal system is complex, so it’s hard to give a definite answer. It depends on whether the employer and employee are willing to settle out of court. If they can’t agree, filing a lawsuit might take anywhere from a few months up to three years.
What are my legal rights as an employee?
According to the law, you have several inalienable rights as an employee. These include receiving minimum wage, and protection against discrimination based on personal characteristics such as race, sex, age, etc., You are also allowed to file complaints about adverse working conditions without fear of retaliation.
