Under Maryland law, employment is “at will,” which means that employers can fire you any time, for any reason – even a bad reason, a wrong reason, or no reason. An employer can fire you because you did not follow a rule, because you were disrespectful, or because you showed up for work in a bad mood.
However, there are a few exceptions. An employer cannot fire you:
- If you have a contract that limits the grounds upon which your employer can terminate your employment.
- For any discriminatory reasons or for pursuing a discrimination claim.
- For any reasons that are contrary to public policy. For example, an employer cannot fire you for filing a workers’ compensation claim or for engaging in “whistleblower” activity if you complain to government authorities about your employer. To win such a claim, you must prove that your employer violated a “clear mandate” of public policy when your employment was terminated.
How to Fight Wrongful Termination
Employment at-will is the standard form of employment in most of the USA, meaning employers can fire or demote employees at any time. However, there are federal and local state laws that prohibit adverse employment action under specific circumstances.
If you’ve recently been fired and have started thinking about how to prove your wrongful termination claim, you have options.
You can prove wrongful termination by:
- Gather your employment documents
- Write down the details of your termination
- Determine if you are/were an at-will employee
- Were any laws broken?
- Talk with an attorney
- Co-worker interviews
- File your claim in a timely manner
