What is Wrongful Termination?

Add Answer
Wrongful termination generally means an unfair employment discharge. However, not every unfair employment discharge constitutes wrongful termination. As some of the alternate terms indicate, an construction employer must illegally discharge an employee for the act to constitute wrongful termination, at least in the legal sense. If the discharge is not illegal, then it's not likely to be wrongful termination in the legal sense, regardless of how unfair it seems. For example, if a construction manager unfairly discharges an employee clearly in violation of a specific discrimination law, then the discharge was illegal and thus, likely to be wrongful termination.
