There are different types of laws surrounding workplace rights in the state of Connecticut. It can be very hard for you to determine if you have been wrongfully terminated and if you have a legal case against your previous employer. No matter what, if you think you were fired for no reason at all, it’s a good idea to speak to an attorney. The law offices of Mark Sherman can give you compassionate counseling and help you make sense of why you just lost your job.
While there are laws designed to protect employees from Connecticut wrongful termination, they don’t always apply. The state does have an “at-will” law, which means employees who did not sign a contract can be terminated without specific reason. However, there are situations in which you can’t just be fired. For example, discrimination is never tolerated. If a person is terminated because of age, sex, race, religion, disability or nationality, then this would be grounds for a lawsuit. Additionally, a victim of sexual harassment can’t be terminated for that reason.
