What are my legal rights after wrongful termination?
In general, you must file a wrongful termination claim within one year after the termination of your employment. You may sue your employer for wrongful termination if:
- Your termination breaches an employment contract.
- You were terminated for discriminatory reasons, and you received a “right to sue” letter.
- Your termination was an illegal retaliation for your protected conduct, such as your refusal to commit an unlawful act.
