Are your employer’s actions unfair or unlawful?

If you have been fired from a job in Indiana, you may wonder whether the actions taken against you were unlawful or simply unfair. It can be difficult to understand the difference between the two, but doing so can help you determine whether you have been a victim of wrongful termination or merely had an unkind boss.


According to Bowling Green State University, an employer’s reasons for firing you must violate the protections put in place by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in order to be found illegal. An employer may violate his or her own policies or union contracts and still be operating within the law.


Reasons for firing regarding your religion, age, national origin, race, color or sex can be considered unlawful and qualify as wrongful termination. Determining if this is happening can be difficult, since some situations may seem like certain types of discrimination, even though they are not. For instance, you cannot claim sexual discrimination simply because you are a female and were let go while a male employee was not.


To prove that you were discriminated against, you need to be able to show that you were treated differently from someone else who had a similar position and duties to you, but was of a different race. This can be concluded with statistics, documents or through the testimony of fellow employees who have firsthand knowledge about your situation. This information is intended for your education about what qualifies as wrongful termination and should not be taken as legal advice.
