Unlawful Termination

Unlawful termination, also known as wrongful dismissal, occurs when an employee has been terminated under circumstances that violate an employment law. Just because you work in an “at-will” state doesn’t mean that employers can fire you for  any reason. In fact, there are several circumstances where a case can be made for wrongful termination like:

Discrimination against a protected class

Retaliation for reporting a civil rights violation

Termination to deprive employee of earned benefits

Breach of express or implied contract requiring “good cause”

Constructive discharge or creating a hostile work environment

Violation of public policy expressed in the Kentucky Revised Statutes or the Kentucky Constitution

Unlawful termination can be devastating for an individual, but the attorneys at Abney &McCarty are here to help you right that wrong.
