Sexual Harassment, Discrimination Law And Wrongful Termination
Most employees are “employees at will,” which means that an employer has the right to terminate their employment for any reason, whether the reason is unsound or for no reason at all.
Absent an enforceable contract, an employer may terminate an employment relationship, with or without notice, even when the employee has a spotless employment record, has never been late, and has received bonuses and promotions.
However, when an employer behaves unlawfully, and they do, the law is there for you. An employer cannot deny or terminate employment because of age, sex, race, religion, marital status, national origin or for certain public policy reasons. Additionally, an employer cannot deny or terminate employment because an employee is pregnant or has a physical and/or mental disability. Your employer is further obligated to provide an environment free from sexual harassment or hostility. If your employer has a policy handbook outlining specific reasons for dismissal and/or disciplinary procedures they must adhere to the specific policies they create.
The attorneys and personnel at Solomon Law Firm understand the emotional and financial difficulties employees face when they have been the victims of discrimination and/or wrongful termination.
