Answering Your Questions Regarding Workplace Discrimination And Wrongful Termination
Uncovering employment discrimination can be difficult. An employer might hide discriminatory decisions with other explanations. An employee may interpret remarks or decisions quite differently than what was intended.
If you suspect that your employer has discriminated against you or if you are facing claims of workplace discrimination from an employee within your company, seek the advice of an experienced employment law attorney.

When Is Termination ‘Wrongful?’
Wrongful termination happens when an employer fires or lays off an employee for an illegal reason. This not only includes discrimination based on age, race, gender, national origin or religion but also includes:
- Firing an employee in violation of an employment agreement or collective bargaining laws
- Terminating an employee in retaliation for raising concern regarding illegal conduct, filing a claim or complaint against an employer
- Denying an employee’s right to medical or pregnancy leave
