The term “wrongful termination” is misleading because in NEW JERSEY and most other states, without a written Agreement for a specific term, employment is “at will.” This means that employers can fire or terminate you for any reason, or for no reason at all, unless:
A. Your rights are protected under employment discrimination laws. Employers cannot discriminate against you on the basis of age, race, gender, disability or perceived disability, religion and/or national origin, pregnancy status, marital status, or sexual orientation.
B. You have an employment contract, either written or implied, with the employer, who agreed that you cannot be fired without just cause for a specific period of time. The terms of the contract will usually determine the reasons for which you can be fired.
If you believe you have been fired for questionable reasons that may constitute employment discrimination or a breach of contract , then you might consider discussing your concerns with an employment attorney.
