Wrongful termination is being fired for an illegal reason. It can also mean being forced to quit due to harassment for an improper motive. Wrongful termination is more than just unpleasant working conditions. Instead, it’s when an employer takes action for an illegal reason. Discrimination is one example, but many different actions are considered wrongful termination.

If you’ve been fired illegally, you have a legal right to fight back. Here are some examples of types of wrongful termination cases:

  • Discrimination. Federal and state laws prohibit employers from discriminating against workers based on protected characteristics. These classes include race, gender, national origin, religion, creed, sexual orientation, age and marital status. The exact list of protected classes varies by state and local jurisdictions, so it’s essential to meet with our Fort Collins attorneys about your case for a personal consultation. Wrongful termination occurs when an employer terminates an employee based on one of the protected characteristics.
  • Retaliation. Retaliation occurs when an employer takes adverse action against someone for reporting an issue at work. For example, if workers report a safety violation, the company can’t fire them for making the report. The same is true for exercising a legal right like going to jury duty when called or suffering an injury on the job. Retaliation for complaining about discrimination or sexual harassment can also count as wrongful retaliation.
  • Breach of Employment Contract. Sometimes, an employment contract exists between a worker and a company. An individual might have a contract. Unions can also have collective agreements for their workers. Breaching the employment contract can be an act of wrongful termination. Whether or not the firing is illegal depends on the exact language of the contract and whether the contract is enforceable.
  • Taking Legally Protective Leave. Federal and state laws grant certain protections for employees. They have a right to take certain types of leave if they qualify. Family leave and medical leave are two examples. When a worker falls within their rights to take leave and choose to take it, their employer cannot discriminate against them for exercising their rights.
  • Constructive Discharge. Constructive discharge is similar to getting fired, but the worker doesn’t formally get fired. Instead, the employer engages in a series of acts to discriminate against the worker because of a protected characteristic. The goal is to make the worker quit by making the workplace intolerable. In reality, the person who quits is the victim of discrimination.

You can claim constructive termination in Colorado when your employer makes your working situation impossible in an attempt to get you to quit for an inappropriate reason. The intolerable working situation has to be based on discrimination or another illegal action. Rather than just firing the worker, the employer forces the person to quit by making the workplace insufferable. 

You can claim constructive termination in Fort Collins in situations that are similar to wrongful termination. However, instead of firing the person directly, the employer tries to make the workplace unbearable. The resignation is considered involuntary.

  • Back pay
  • Benefits that you missed out on

TESTIMONIALS

“Corey and Ashley were very professional, communicative, and knowledgeable about every step of the case. We were hit by a drunk driver and didn’t know what the next step was to seek medical attention in a way that wasn’t a major expense to us. The attorneys here are super caring and got us a decent amount of money after paying off our treatment. I hope to never have to call a personal injury attorney but if I do it will be them.” – Eric M 5/5 Stars
