Connecticut is one of many states with “at will” employment laws, meaning both employers and their employees may terminate this relationship without needing a reason. If this termination violates a public policy or an employment contract, however, it may not be lawful. The emotional and financial impact of a wrongful termination can be substantial, but you have a right to pursue justice through legal action.

What Qualifies as Wrongful Termination?
There are essentially two basic types of wrongful termination in Connecticut, a termination in violation of public policy or a violation of an employment contract. This contract does not necessarily need to be written and signed, as verbal contracts can often be enforced in court.
You may have grounds for a claim if your employer:
- Violated a public policy
- Violated your written or verbal contract
