A wrongful termination may occur when an employee who has been terminated is in a protected class, feels that their rights have been violated, or believes that they were terminated for exercising their rights under various labor laws.
One-third of all employment-related lawsuits involve allegations of wrongful termination. Recent studies show that companies lose more than 60% of all wrongful termination charges and the average jury award in these cases is $600,000. According to the latest EEOC enforcement statistics, retaliation continues to be the most frequently filed charge with the agency. Fortunately, wrongful termination can be mitigated when employers understand the laws and regulations that govern the employment relationship and learn to recognize potential triggers of unlawful decisions.
