Keeping a Firing from Backfiring

While many employers have the right to fire employees at will, federal labor laws protect workers from being fired because of certain acts of discrimination or retaliation. Additionally, workers may be protected by state law, public policy, and contractual obligations, such as collective bargaining agreements. In 2011 and 2012 over 11,000 retaliation claims were filed in U.S. courts. This session is a must for all employers to know how to avoid termination pitfalls.
