Types of Wrongful Termination in New York
In New York, most employees are employees-at-will. This means that they can be fired for any reason or for no reason at all. An at-will employee can be fired for misconduct, downsizing, performance issues, or a conflict of personalities.
There are, however, some unlawful reasons for an employer to fire an employee. When someone is fired illegally, it is known as wrongful termination.
Types of wrongful termination include:
- Termination that violates an employment contract
- Termination that results from discrimination based on race, sex, or another protected category
- Termination based on retaliating against an employee who exercises his or her rights concerning wage and hour issues and time off from work
