What Makes a Termination "Wrongful"?

The term "wrongful termination" means that an employer has fired or laid off an employee for illegal reasons in the eyes of the law. Illegal reasons for termination include:

    * Firing in violation of federal and state anti-discrimination laws;
    * Firing as a form of sexual harassment;
    * Firing in violation of oral and written employment agreements;
    * Firing in violation of labor laws, including collective bargaining laws; and
    * Firing in retaliation for the employee's having filed a complaint or claim against the employer.            
Some of these violations carry statutory penalties, while others will result in the employer's payment of damages based on the terminated employee's lost wages and other expenses. Certain wrongful termination cases may raise the possibility that the employer pay punitive damages to the terminated employee, while other cases may carry the prospect of holding more than one wrongdoer responsible for damages.

Harassment and Hostile Work Environment

Almost one-third of all natial orginal discrimination claims include charges of workplace harassment include ethnic slurs, workplace graffiti, and other conduct, creating a hostile work environment based on an individual's birthplace, ethnicity, culture, or foreign accent.   Such conduct may be "merely offensive" if it isolaed, but if it becomes severe and pervasive, adversely affecting the victim's performance, it will violate Title VII.  Relevant factors used by the EEOC in evaluating whether national origin harassment rises to the level of creating a hostile work environment may include any of the following:
   
    * Whether the conduct was physically threatening or intimidating;
    * How frequently the conduct was repeated;
    * Whether the conduct was hostile and/or patently offensive;
    * The context in which the harassment occured; and
    * Whether management responded appropriately when it learned of the  
       harassement.

If the victim reports the conduct to higher management or HR, but gets no response, and as a result they experience great difficulty performing their job, Title VII has been violated by the creation of a   hostile work environment. 
 
Title VII protects employees who oppose harassment in the workplace by reporting such conduct to HR that the employee in good-faith believes is in violation of the law.  An employee who files a complaint with HR or higher management in opposition to harassment and a hostile work environment, who then is subsequently terminated for pretextual reasons, may have a claim for harassment and wrongful termination under Title VII.
