Wrongful termination occurs when a person is fired on the basis of race, sex, ethnic origin, age (40 or over), pregnancy, disability, religion, sexual orientation, or medical condition. It also occurs when a person is fired for reporting or complaining about an illegal act committed by the employer or for refusing to sign an illegal agreement. Victims of wrongful termination can seek compensation for lost wages, benefits, emotional distress and, in some cases, punitive damages.
