Avoiding Wrongful Employee Terminations


To be wrongfully  terminated is to be fired for an illegal reason, which may involve  violation of federal anti-discrimination laws or a contractual breach. The  legal standards governing termination differ substantially depending on  whether private-sector and nonunion employees or public-sector and  unionized employees are being considered. As the company HR leader, you  are accountable to the organization to ensure that all employee  terminations are initiated and completed while maintaining strict  adherence to current employment laws and EEOC guidelines.
