In many states and unless you have a contract stating otherwise, an employer can terminate you for ANY reason or no reason at all. However, if you are fired because of unlawful discrimination, harassment, or in retaliation for advocating for your protected rights, then you may have a claim against your former employer.
Some of these protected rights include race, age, disability, religion, gender (including pregnancy and pregnancy complications), or filing a worker’s compensation or overtime claim.
