Some employers illegally terminate employment

There are times when a job termination is 100 percent legal. There are also times when a company illegally terminates employment, putting the worker in a difficult position.

A wrongful termination is a violation of the law. While some people let this go, simply moving onto another position, others realize they have been treated unfairly and decide to do something about it.

Here are some of the many types of illegal termination of employment:

-- Discrimination against a person because of color, race, religion, age, gender, disability, national origin, or veteran status.

-- Terminating employment because a person filed a workers' compensation claim.

-- Filing a complaint about discrimination or a safety violation.

-- Blowing the whistle on some type of illegal activity by the employer.

-- Taking a family or medical leave provided by the Family and Medical Leave Act.

These are just some of the many behaviors that are considered to be illegal termination.

Most companies realize the importance of following every aspect of the law, as they don't want to cross the line and find themselves in trouble for illegally terminating an employee. There are other companies that don't think twice about this, believing they can do whatever they want.
