In New York State, as in many other states, employment is “at will.” This means an employer can terminate an employee for any reason, as long as is not due to discrimination or a broken agreement. Wrongful termination is usually the result of some type of discrimination, or the result of a contract, writing, or agreement between you and your employer that has been broken.
If you feel you are being discriminated against or being harassed at work, report it to a supervisor and keep a record of your reporting. An Employer does not have to be right or reasonable when they fire you. You may be fired for no reason at all, that’s not against the law.
