Wrongful Termination Fighting for Your Best Interest

Wrongful Termination Lawyer NYC

Aggressively Protecting Workers’ Rights in New York

Employees are considered to be working “at-will” in New York, meaning that an employer may fire an employee at any time for any reason. Unfortunately, some employers abuse this principal in order to let employees go for illegitimate reasons, such as due to their race, their refusal to participate in illegal activities, or as retaliation for whistleblowing. At Nisar Law Group, P.C., our trial-tested New York wrongful termination lawyers believe that employers must be held accountable when they knowingly violate worker rights and are prepared to go the distance in pursuit of justice on your behalf.

What Is Considered Wrongful Termination in New York?

While at-will law does give employers the right to terminate an employee for almost any reason, or even no reason at all in some cases, employees are afforded numerous state and federal protections against being fired for illegal or discriminatory reasons. Our team of NYC wrongful termination lawyers can examine the circumstances of your case and determine the most appropriate course of action to pursue.

Common examples of wrongful termination include:

  • Employee discrimination: Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1984, employers are prohibited from taking negative actions against an employee based on their sex, race, national origin, religion, age, disability or other protected characteristic.
  • Retaliation: Employees cannot be punished for engaging in legal actions such as filing a complaint about harassment, discrimination, or whistleblowing. While retaliation may include acts as drastic as wrongful termination, other prohibited acts include targeted demotions, sudden transfers, or promotion denials.
  • Breach of contract: An employment contract may sometimes specify the terms under which an employee may be terminated. A case may sometimes be made that a worker is not an at-will employee if their contract includes clauses which relate to job security.
  • Policy violations: Workers may not be released for engaging in state or federally protected acts, such as taking time off for jury duty, to vote, or to serve in the armed forces.
