Although some instances of workplace discrimination do not result in a termination of the employer-employee relationship, many discrimination claims allege wrongful termination on the basis of race, national origin, gender, pregnancy, disability, religion, sexual orientation, or medical condition in violation of state fair employment laws. Termination for whistleblower activity, in which the employee reports an employer’s illegal activity, also gives rise to civil liability. If you were terminated in violation of the law, you may be able to recover economic damages, such as lost wages and/or benefits, damages based on your emotional distress associated with the wrongful termination, and even punitive damages if the employer’s conduct intentionally disregarded your rights or your safety.
