  • What Is At-Will Employment?

    Employment in Mississippi is considered “at-will,” which means employers are free to dismiss their employees at any time, with or without reason or warning. However, there are exceptions to the at-will rule. For example, your employer can’t fire you for discriminatory reasons.

  • What Is Wrongful Termination in Mississippi?

    When an employer terminates an employee in violation of state or federal laws, it’s known as wrongful termination, wrongful dismissal, or wrongful discharge. Although Mississippi is an at-will state, there are circumstances which may meet this standard. For example:

    • Breach of Contract: If you have a contract guaranteeing you employment and your employer fires you, it may constitute wrongful termination.
    • Discrimination: You may have a claim if your employer dismissed you because of your race, national origin, age, sex, or another protected characteristic.
    • Retaliation: Federal law protects workers from dismissal as punishment when they exercise certain rights. For example, if you filed a workers’ compensation claim for an on-the-job injury, your employer can’t dismiss you for it without risking legal action.

    The victims of wrongful termination may be entitled to compensation for lost income, lost benefits, emotional stress, and other damages. The labor and employment attorneys at Morgan & Morgan can help you assess your legal options.
