South Carolina Wrongful Termination

Losing your job can mean losing income as well as health insurance and other benefits. Ultimately, this can significantly affect your quality of life. 

However, if you were wrongfully removed from your position, you could be entitled to compensation. Even in “at-will” states like South Carolina, where employees can be fired without warning for almost anything, there are some state and federal laws that protect workers.

  • What Is Wrongful Termination?

    Wrongful termination takes place when an employer fires an employee for an unlawful reason. The labor and employment attorneys at Morgan & Morgan can help you determine if you’ve been wrongfully terminated and take the next steps toward justice and compensation.

  • What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Termination in South Carolina?

    At-will employment leaves a lot of room for employers to terminate their employees as they see fit. However, there are several reasons for which you can’t be fired.

    • Breach of Contract: Despite being an at-will employment state, South Carolina takes employment contracts seriously. If you’re contracted to work for a certain duration of time, you can’t be fired without good cause before that time is up.
    • Discrimination: You can’t be fired because of a protected characteristic like religion, race, or gender. If you are, you should contact a labor and employment lawyer.
    • Public Policy: If you’re dismissed because you refused to break the law or partake in illegal activities on behalf of your employer, you have been wrongfully terminated.
    • Retaliation: Your employer can’t let you go as a punishment for exercising your legal rights. If you’re fired for whistleblowing or objecting to unfair labor practices, you could have a case for a lawsuit.
    • Military Leave: If you enlist in the military, you’re entitled to up to five years of unpaid leave to serve. Once your leave is over, you’ll have the right to be reinstated to your previous position.
