Did An Idaho Employer Illegally Terminate You?
Generally, when you are employed in Idaho, it is “at will.” This means an employer can terminate a worker at any time for any reason, as long as that reason does not infringe upon the worker’s rights or an employment contract. Wrongful termination occurs when you are fired unlawfully, for reasons such as:
- Discrimination based on race, national origin, religion, age, gender or disability
- Retaliation for asserting legal rights
- Retaliation for taking FMLA leave or exercising other workers’ rights
These cases are often complicated, because employers never admit to firing workers for these reasons. They often provide false reasons or set their employees up for failure to justify their firing.
The employment lawyers at Jones Williams Fuhrman Gourley, P.A., will thoroughly investigate your termination to uncover the true motives behind your employer’s decision. This can include obtaining your personnel file, reviewing relevant documentation from management, gathering company emails and more.
