Wrongful employment termination occurs when an employee is fired for illegal reasons, or in a manner that is contrary to the employee’s rights under his or her employment contract, or if the policies of the business are violated when the employee is discharged. Whether you are an employer or an employee within the State of Vermont, it is important that you understand the rules and regulations regarding wrongful employment termination. Andy Montroll has many years of experience in this field.
Vermont wrongful employment termination laws guard against employees being unjustly discharged for reason based on discrimination or retaliation. Grounds for discrimination include firing an employee based upon his or her race, religion, nationality, age, or gender. Reasons for termination based on retaliation may include being fired for upholding corporate policy, complaining, being a whistle blower, or unwillingness to perform an illegal act on behalf of an employer. Employers also have a duty to provide reasonable accommodations for employees who have disabilities and who fall within the protections of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
