If you were fired because you reported something illegal or refused to do something illegal, you may have a claim for wrongful termination.
Medical whistleblower retaliation
The law protects healthcare professionals who report conditions that are dangerous to patients and the public.
Examples of sexual harassment include unwanted groping, sexual advances, sexual innuendo, and any other severe or pervasive offensive behavior because of sex.
It is illegal to harass an employee because of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or veteran or military status.
Family And Medical Leave Act
Employers are required to give qualified employees up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave for family and medical reasons.
Health and safety retaliation
The law requires employers to provide a safe workplace, and protects employees who report unsafe workplace conditions.
It is illegal to terminate an employee because of race, religious creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, genetic information, marital status, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, age, sexual orientation, or veteran or military status.
Employers are required to provide disabled employees with a reasonable accommodation so that the employee can perform the essential functions of the job. Sadly, some employers prefer to fire disabled employees instead of following the law.
