Wrongful termination refers to the act of firing or laying off an employee for illegal reasons. This can range from discrimination, retaliation, breach of contract, or violating public policy. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated from your job, it’s important to take legal action.
In Virginia, employees are considered “at-will” workers, meaning that they can be terminated without a reason. However, there are certain exceptions to this rule, such as if the termination is based on a protected characteristic such as race, religion, gender, or national origin.
Being wrongfully terminated can have severe consequences for your future employment and finances. Not only do you lose your job, but you may also struggle to find new employment if potential employers learn about your previous termination. This can lead to a vicious cycle of unemployment and financial stress.
It’s also important to consider the emotional impact of wrongful termination. Losing your job can be a traumatic experience and can lead to feelings of anger, frustration, and depression.
