Wrongful terminations and your rights as an employee

When you're in an at-will employment relationship, it means that your employer can choose to terminate your position at any time without advanced notice. Your employer can also choose to give you advanced notice, but this isn't required, just as he doesn't need to provide you with a reason for the termination.

Sexual orientation shouldn't lead to discrimination

As a working employee, you have rights that protect you from being harassed or discriminated against based on your sexual orientation. Federal and state laws exist to prevent this kind of situation in the workplace, because it is not only disruptive but harmful to employees on the whole. If you are mistreated because you are gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, heterosexual or have any other sexual preference, you may be able to file a claim against your employer.

Age discrimination: Still affecting Americans in the workplace

Getting older shouldn't mean you have fewer opportunities to find a good job, but that's how it can be in today's market. While age discrimination is illegal, getting fired for your age is something that still happens and can be hard to prove. If you feel that you may have been fired because you've gotten older and newer employees could be paid less or work more than you, then you may want to consider taking legal steps toward filing a lawsuit.
