Wrongful Termination Lawsuit

Wrongful Termination Lawsuit

A lawsuit resulting from a situation in which an employer terminates an employee in violation of relevant law, the contract of employment or the employer's own dismissal procedures. What constitutes wrongful termination 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. A wrongful termination lawsuit may result in damages being awarded to the former employee, and possibly in mandatory reinstatement.
