What are some examples of wrongful terminations?

A wrongful termination can turn your life upside down. One minute, you're working with your coworkers like any other normal day. The next, you're cleaning out your desk for reasons you can't quite understand.

Wrongful termination can happen for many reasons. Here are a few example situations that could be considered wrongful terminations.

A story of retaliation

Jenny was approached by her boss last week. He told her that he liked her work ethic, and he was willing to talk to her about a raise if she wanted to go out to dinner with him. She was surprised that he'd be so blunt about wanting to ask her out and that the raise she wanted would be contingent on dating the boss. She refused. Just a few days later, she found herself terminated under the guise of the position being eliminated.

A harassment case

Leonard was working with a coworker when a third coworker approached and started yelling at them. They had no idea what they'd done wrong or why they were being screamed at, but this wasn't the first time that the other person had started trouble. Tired of this kind of work environment, Leonard finally went to the Human Resources representative to talk about the issue. Just a few days later, he found out that he was being let go. The other person involved was getting a promotion.

Both of these cases could be situations in which a person was wrongfully terminated. If you lose your job after reporting harassment or turning down sexual advances, you may have a case.
