Wrongful Termination

Most employment is “at-will” meaning that an employee can quit anytime and be fired anytime, as long as the reasons are legally valid. In Massachusetts, all employment is deemed at-will, unless there is evidence to the contrary, like a jointly signed employment contract with terms of termination specifically listed.

Many times wrongful termination suits will arise when an employee is in a protected class.  Firing an employee on the basis of his or her race, color, national origin, sex, religion, disability, pregnancy, or age clearly constitutes wrongful termination. Massachusetts has added gender identity as a protected class. We can help resolve the following:

  • Termination in retaliation and whistleblower protection
  • Violation of employment agreements
  • Violation of company or public policy in firing
  • Exceptions to employment at-will.
