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
