What is a Wrongful Termination in Massachusetts?
Massachusetts is an at-will employment jurisdiction. Companies and organizations in Hampshire County, MA retain wide discretion over their own hiring and firing decisions. An employer can terminate a worker for just about any reason, including some unwise and unfair reasons. That being said, a Massachusetts employer cannot fire a worker for an illegal reason. You may have been the victim of wrongful termination if you were fired or laid off due to:
Discrimination: In Massachusetts, employees are protected against unlawful discrimination. You may have a valid wrongful termination claim if your termination was motivated by discrimination against a protected characteristic, such as race, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, pregnancy status, or disability status.
Retaliation: All Massachusetts employees have the right to participate in protected activities in the workplace. Employers cannot take adverse action against you simply because you asserted your rights. If you were fired in retaliation for reporting sexual harassment, reporting wage and hour violation, or engaging in any other type of protected activity, call our Northampton wrongful termination lawyer right away.
Breach of Contract: Employment agreements are enforceable legal contracts. If an employer removed you in violation of an employment agreement, you may have a wrongful termination claim on the basis of breach of contract.
