What Is Wrongful Termination?

In Colorado, most employees are employees at will. This means that employers can terminate an employment relationship without notice and without cause. However, state and federal employment law has some important exceptions to this general rule. You cannot be terminated for:

  • Filing a claim for workers’ compensation
  • Exercising your rights and duties as a citizen
  • Reporting health code violations
  • Reporting overtime violations

You cannot be terminated on the basis of:

  • Gender
  • Race
  • Religion
  • National origin
  • Sexual orientation
  • Disability

Firing an employee for these criteria constitutes wrongful termination. This is illegal under federal and state laws.I can help you file an EEOC Charge of Discrimination form and other forms at the state level to document what has happened to you.

Providing Strong Whistleblower Protection

In our state, it is illegal to fire a worker for reporting an illegal activity in good faith to an employer or a governmental agency. Employers also cannot require workers to perform an illegal act to maintain employment.

If you blew the whistle on illegal activity, both federal and state laws protect you. However, these claims are difficult to prove, and usually depend on the method and manner that you report such activity. Scott F. Reese P.C. can help defend your rights and prove your claim.
