Wrongful Dismissal

The termination of an employee in violation of relevant law, the contract of employment or the employer's own dismissal procedures. What constitutes wrongful dismissal varies by jurisdiction. Generally, however, termination because of race, sex or other protected class is illegal. Likewise, dismissal outside the parameters the employer himself has set in place may be considered wrongful. Wrongful dismissal may result in a lawsuit.
