Philadelphia Wrongful Termination Lawyers

In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, your employment is “at will” unless you have a written agreement with your employer for a specific term. In other words, your employer can terminate you for any reason or no reason at all. However, there are some exceptions.

Your employer may not terminate you in violation of an existing anti-discrimination statute. These statutes prohibit termination based on factors including, but not limited to, your race, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, pregnancy, age, disability, perceived disability, record of impairment, and use of leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act. Additionally, if you have a written or implied contract with your employer for a specified period of time, your employer may not terminate you unless it is in accordance with the terms of that contract.

Outside of these exceptions, your employer can terminate you for whatever reason they like, even if it is simply because they do not like you. It is not illegal for your employer to be disrespectful or yell at you when you are terminated. You may even have done nothing wrong. Unfortunately, your employer is allowed to be wrong when they terminate you. What your employer is not allowed to do is violate an existing statute or the terms of your contract if you have one.
