Most workers are "at-will employees." This means they are not under contract, and can leave at any time. This also gives employers the right to terminate employment at any time. However, there are still rules for these relationships, many of which could apply to your situation:

  • Discrimination at work: This means that no employer can fire any employee due to discriminating factors such as race, age, political affiliation, religion, sex, or nationality.
  • Retaliatory termination: No at-will employees' jobs can be terminated for whistle blowing. This includes filing for workers compensation, engaging in union activity, filing a sexual harassment case, making reports about illegal workplace conditions, or claiming wage violations.
  • Family and medical leave: Employers cannot fire an employee who has taken a leave of absence for health complications, to care for someone in their immediate family, or because of pregnancy.
  • Implied contract establishment: Even if the contract is not in writing, if an employer has promised personal continued employment as long as certain standards are met, this is an implied contract, preventing the employee from being terminated without cause.
  • Refusal to illegal activities: If an employee refuses to participate in illegal acts that benefit the company, such as not paying taxes or not reporting assets, they cannot be terminated for this reason.
  • Failure to follow policies for termination: Employers have their own policies for terminating an at-will employee, which they must follow.
