Reasons for a Wrongful Termination Claim
If you have an employment contract, your employer is bound to honor the provisions of the agreement and may not be able to fire you without establishing that they had just cause. If you have a contract and your employer did not have just cause, you should contact an employment lawyer at Pearson Butler immediately.
If you are a public sector employee and work for a government entity, you likely have a constitutionally protected property interest in your employment and your employer must provide you with due process. If you have been fired from a public sector job, you should contact an employment lawyer at Pearson Butler immediately.
If you are a private sector employee who does not have a contract, you are likely an at-will employee and your employer can make the decision to end your employment for just about any reason. However, Utah recognizes many exceptions to at-will employment laws for your protection. For instance, you cannot be fired because you:
- participated in jury duty,
- refused to do something illegal,
- got hurt at work
- filed a worker’s compensation claim, or
- reported the unlawful conduct of your employer.
