Whistleblowing and Other Types of Wrongful Termination

Although employers often have the right to terminate employees for poor performance and other reasons, there are limits that protect workers. An employer may not fire you for refusing to violate the law or for reporting violations of law or public policy (“whistleblowing”). You are also protected fromretaliation for reporting workplace discrimination.

Examples of Whistleblowing

You may have a claim for whistleblowing or a claim for wrongful termination if:
  • An employee knows her employer is committing fraud through improper accounting practices or simply by theft, and is fired for reporting or complaining about it;
  • You are terminated for doing things the law encourages, like voting or serving on a jury;
  • You are terminated or disciplined or treated badly for filing a workers’ compensation claim (or even for merely suffering an injury on the job for which you could file a workers’ compensation claim).
