At-will employees are employees with no formal contract with their employer, which means their employer can terminate their work at any time. In some instances, employees may have signed a written contract containing an at-will clause that states the employer may terminate the contract at any time without cause. Of course, these at-will employees still possess certain legal rights against wrongful termination and may not be filed for reasons which violate the law or public policy.
Constructive wrongful termination takes place when an employer creates adverse working conditions for their employee, which forces them to quit. Under federal law it states that if treatment or conditions of an employee are so severe that the person cannot continue working in the environment, the employee may quit and seek damages as a result of any lost wages.
In addition, the law recognizes that employees cannot simply quit working and sue their employer. Every worker is required to use every means possible to resolve a workplace issue prior to quitting. If an employee fails to attempt to resolve an issue, they may lose the ability to achieve compensation.
This includes both state and federal laws used to prevent employers from retaliating against employees for whistle blowing. This means that if an employee provides information about their employers illegal actions to the government, including wasting funds or mismanagement, they cannot be terminated.
There are several forms of wrongful discharge which take place across America each day; unfortunately, many people fail to identify several of these actions as being illegal. The following includes some means of wrongful discharge:
