What is Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful termination transpires when an employer dismisses an employee in contravention of federal or state laws, employment agreements, or public policy. It's crucial to grasp that employment in Arizona is typically categorized as "at-will," signifying that either the employer or the employee can conclude the employment relationship at any juncture and for any rationale unless stipulated otherwise by a contract. It is imperative to note that this at-will status does not grant employers unrestricted authority to terminate employees based on unlawful or discriminatory grounds.

Examples of Wrongful Termination

The following situations may be grounds for a wrongful termination claim in the state of Arizona:

  • Discrimination: State and federal laws dictate that an employer may not fire an employee for discrimination, such as sex, race, age, religion, disability, or national origin.
  • Medical Condition: A medical condition, including pregnancy, cannot be the basis for the termination of an employee. Medical leave, taken by the Family and Medical Leave Act, is also not a fireable offense.
  • Performance of Legal Rights or Public Policy Issues: Employees cannot be fired for joining a union, filing a workers' compensation claim, reporting safety violations, attending jury duty, or participating in any other public service.
  • Contractual Rights & Policy Issues: An employer cannot violate the terms of a written contract between them and an employee or a policy in an employee manual or handbook. The contract or policy may dictate the length of employment or termination procedures.

What Proof Do I Need in a Wrongful Termination Case?

Building a strong case for wrongful termination requires gathering evidence to support your claims. While the specific evidence needed can vary based on the circumstances, some common types of proof may include:

  • Employment Contracts: If you have an employment contract, provide a copy to establish the terms and conditions of your employment.
  • Performance Records: Document your job performance and any positive feedback or evaluations you received.
  • Emails and Correspondence: Keep records of any relevant emails, text messages, or other correspondence that may support your case.
  • Witness Statements: Statements from coworkers who witnessed the events leading to your termination can strengthen your case.
  • Company Policies: Familiarize yourself with the company's policies and procedures, as violating these policies may contribute to a wrongful termination claim.

How a Wrongful Termination Lawyer Can Help

If you were wrongfully fired, the lawyers of Weiler Law PLLC can help you understand your legal rights and represent you in protecting those rights. Specifically, we can assist you if:

  • You need to determine if you have an actionable claim, and you want to understand the process of pursuing litigation
  • You need aggressive representation in court
  • You were terminated in retaliation for reporting misconduct
  • You reported sexual harassment or rejected sexual overtures from a manager
  • You took or requested family leave covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
