If you have been let go from your place of employment in Indiana and believe that it was an unfair move, you may be right. At the Employment Law Office of John H. Haskin, we will work with you to pinpoint whether or not you have been wrongfully terminated.
First of all, you should be aware of the fact that Indiana is a state of at-will employment. What does this mean for you? Simply put, it’s legal for you to be terminated from your job for all but two reasons. However, if you believe your case falls under one of those reasons, you may have been wrongfully terminated. The first is refusing to do something illegal. “Retaliatory discharge” is the act of your employer firing you in response to you refusing to do something illegal, such as making false claims or doctoring books. Your refusal cannot be met with termination.
The second case involves statuatory rights. For example, if you have filed to get workers’ compensation benefits, that is not something your employer can legally terminate you for. If you believe that you have been fired as a result of claiming something that is your statuatory right, you could have a wrongful termination case.
