Pennsylvania Wrongful Termination

Like most states, Pennsylvania considers employment at-will. That means that an employer or employee can end a working relationship at any time and for almost any reason. If the reason is unlawful, however, it could be grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit.

What Is Wrongful Termination?

“At-will” doesn’t apply in all cases – there are reasons that don’t serve as legitimate grounds for termination in the eyes of the law. If you’ve been fired from your job due to discrimination, for example, talk to the labor and employment attorneys at Morgan & Morgan. We can fight to get you the compensation you deserve after dealing with the emotional and financial stress of being wrongfully terminated.

What Are Some Examples of Wrongful Termination in Pennsylvania?

If you work in Pennsylvania and you’ve been let go due to your race, religion, gender, disability, or age (if you’re over 40), your termination was wrongful. These are protected characteristics, and firing an employee because of any of them is against the law.

Your employer is also prohibited from firing you as an act of retaliation. You have the right to make workers’ compensation claims, serve jury duty, and act in accordance with public policy, and you cannot be let go for doing so.

Additionally, you and your employer might have a contract that supersedes the “at-will” doctrine. If your employer breaches a written, verbal, or even implied contract, you might have a case for wrongful termination.
