What Is Wrongful Termination?
This is a very good question, because New York is an employment at will state. This means your employer often does not need a reason to fire you unless you have signed an employment contract or bargaining agreement that says cause must be provided.
However, wrongful termination may have occurred if you are discharged from employment for illegal reasons such as discrimination or if your company violated its own policy by firing you. Losing your job in this way can easily leave you feeling angry, upset, scared and confused. You need a law firm that focuses exclusively on employment law and protecting your rights.

Sometimes these “Jekyll and Hyde” switches occur because a superior learned something about a subordinate that then caused him or her to have a negative bias, like the employee was of a certain religion or sexual orientation. Sometimes the reason is more obvious, like a bias against people of a certain race, being male or female, a woman becoming pregnant or people with disabilities.
