Wrongful Termination

Wrongful Termination Violations

North Carolina and South Carolina are both “at will” employment states. But contrary to what your boss might think, that does not mean your employer can fire you for any reason it wants. Courts have found that certain outrageous reasons to fire employees are illegal even if discrimination or retaliation are not at issue.

There is no precise list of illegal motivations that will provide you a claim for wrongful termination, but if you were fired for any of the following reasons, you might have a claim:

  • Age
  • Race
  • Skin Color
  • National Origin
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Disability
  • Military Service
  • HIV Status
  • Genetic Diseases
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Gender Identity
  • Testifying in Court
  • Domestic Violence Court Dates
  • Smoking
  • Reporting Fraud
  • Reporting Unsafe Working Conditions
  • Reporting Wage and Hour Violations
  • Refusing to Lie
  • Getting Hurt at Work
  • Reporting Public Health Risks
  • Calling the Police
  • Refusing to Break the Law
