Being laid off or fired from your job does not necessarily constitute wrongful termination. If you are not under an employment contract, New Jersey and New York employment laws allow your employer to fire you without an expressed reason. However, there are certain instances where your employer could be found guilty of wrongful termination.
The first of these reasons is if you are terminated due to discrimination. Your employer cannot fire you because of your sex, gender, race, national origin, age, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation or marital status. If you feel that one of these is the cause of your termination, you need to speak with a lawyer right away. Second, if you are under an employment contract that is written or implied, and that contract states that you can’t be fired during a specific period of time, then your employer may be liable.
