What Is a Wrongful Termination?
This legal phrase applies to a separation of an employer-employee working relationship based on faulty grounds. Even though a company -- in the absence of an employment contract -- has the legal right to terminate a worker’s employment at will, it may not do so and cite reasons for the dismissal that governing bodies deem to be illegal.
Have you become afraid to consider dismissal of a worker who may belong to one or more protected classes? A job separation quiz can help dispel myths, show errors and highlight gaps in your understanding of the law.
