What Is Wrongful Termination?
Wrongful termination is when an employer fires an employee for an illegal reason. These include but are not limited to:
- Retaliation for exercising your legal rights, such as filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
- Constructive termination, which is when your employer makes your job so unbearable that you are forced to quit
If you believe that you were wrongfully terminated, then you have a few options. These include but are not limited to:
- File a complaint with the Minnesota Department of Human Rights (MDHR).
- File a lawsuit against your employer in court.
- Contact an employment law attorney to discuss your case.
Wrongful termination encompasses a range of situations, from intolerable working conditions to changes in job roles and classifications. If you’ve been unfairly let go, it’s essential to explore your options. Constructive termination occurs when significant changes to your job, such as reduced pay or altered hours, force you to resign.
