Wrongful Termination

What is Wrongful Termination

You may have heard the term "at-will" employment. Simply put, an at-will employer-employee relationship is one that can be terminated by either party, for (almost) any reason, at (almost) any time. Nebraska is an at-will employment state. However, there are many state and federal laws that protect employees from being illegally discriminated against. Some of the reasons an employer cannot use as a basis for termination include:

  • Race Discrimination
  • Age Discrimination
  • Disability Discrimination
  • Sex Discrimination
  • Religious Discrimination
  • Use of the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Worker's Compensation Retaliation
  • Other Prohibited Reasons
