Wrongful Termination

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 a number of state and federal statutes which legally protect the rights of employees. There are essentially two basic types of wrongful termination in Connecticut, a termination in violation of public policy, including state and federal laws, and 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 state or federal anti-discrimination laws
  • Fired you as sexual harassment (not acquiescing to advances, for example)
  • Violated a collective bargaining agreement
  • Violated your written or verbal contract
  • Violated federal or state labor laws
  • Fired you in retaliation for specific types of complaints
