There are different classes when it comes to wrongful termination. Each class comes with different issues that the plaintiff must prove in court. First, you have to prove that the employment contract and relationship existed and ended by termination.
If you made a complaint to management about harassment in the workplace, you must prove that you made the complaint and were fired within a reasonable amount of time after the harassment complaint was made. Or prove that the termination was directly due to the complaint you put into work.
The employee must prove that discrimination was a motivating factor in their termination. Some of these factors could include; sex, age, race, color, or religion. If you can prove that your employer terminated your contract due to these reasons, then we can push for a wrongful termination case in or out of court.
An employee, in this case, has to prove that they were fired for one of the following protected traits according to the public policy; exercising your constitutional rights, refusing to violate federal laws, state laws, or a statute. If you report this illegal act to the public and get fired because of that, you will also be protected under the public policy.
You must prove that you had a contract with the employer and then show sufficient evidence that they have violated the permissions within your contract.
