What Is Wrongful Termination?
Michigan is one of many states with at-will employment, meaning a working relationship can be terminated at any time, for any reason, by either party. However, there are certain exceptions to this rule that we cannot let employers overlook.
Wrongful termination occurs when an employer fires an employee for reasons that violate state and/or federal law. We illuminate these unfair practices and work to get our clients adequate compensation for their hardship.
What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Termination in Michigan?
There are several instances in which an employer cannot legally fire an employee, and it helps to recognize them. Most wrongful termination cases fall into one of the following categories:
- Retaliation: When an employee is fired for exercising legal rights (such as filing a worker’s compensation claim)
- Discrimination: When a worker is let go because of race, gender, or another protected characteristic
- Breach of Contract: When a termination violates a verbal or written contract between the employer and employee
