Firings and terminations can feel so arbitrary and mean spirited that it is understandably easy to believe an employer has broken employment laws when you are laid off or fired. However, Pennsylvania, like many other states, is an “employment-at-will” state. This means that, absent an employment contract, you do not have a case for wrongful termination unless you were fired for an illegal reason. Though the vast majority of firings in an “employment-at-will” state are legal, there are nonetheless numerous illegal reasons for firings. If you believe that you were fired for an illegal reason, call a PA wrongful discharge lawyer to discuss your case.
Were you fired or laid off:
- For refusing to commit a crime?
- Because a disability?
- After requesting an accommodation?
- In retaliation because you complained about discrimination?
- For serving on jury duty?
- For filing a workers’ compensation claim?
- For reporting wrongdoing or waste?
- For refusing to grant sexual favors?
- Because you are pregnant?
- For taking time off due to a serious health condition?
- For exercising your right to free speech?
- Because of your race, age, sex, religion or disability?
If you were wrongfully fired from your job contact a PA wrongful discharge lawyer.
