The basics of wrongful termination
When many employees lose their jobs, they feel like they have been wrongfully terminated. However, wrongful termination only applies to a set of circumstances in which the employer has violated an actual federal or state statute regulating employment and firing.
Because of the employment at will doctrine, which says that private employers can fire employees for any reason unless they break a specific law, employers generally do not have to provide a justification for firing an employee. Determining whether someone has been wrongfully terminated can be difficult for many employees.
