What Is Wrongful Termination?
In Colorado wrongful termination is used to create a legal cause of action other than race, gender, religion or other traditional unlawful reasons. Employers should be very careful not to get caught up in unnecessary litigation. Fertile areas for lawsuits include:
- Violation of public policy.
In addition to defending a lawsuit, employers may also be faced with a breach of contract claim if there is no at-will employment contract.
The employment law offices of Watson & Associates, LLC frequently help Colorado employers charged with wrongful termination or have received a right-to-sue letter from the Colorado EEOC and contemplate litigation.
- You may have a viable legal defense since Colorado is an at will state.
- Defending against employment discrimination claims in the workplace can be very tricky.
- Before filing an employer position statement to a discrimination claim, you should understand the burden-shifting test that employers must pass.
