Rockville Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Find the right Wrongful Termination attorney in Rockville, MD

Most employment in Maryland considered to be "at-will". This means that either the employer or employee can terminate the employment at any given moment, and for any reason. Basically, the only limitation or exception in an "at will" employment is that the termination must not conflict with the law.

Employment that is not considered "at will" is not subject to the same restrictions, however, and so it is important to discover whether your employment is so classified. Arrangements for employment that are under a set term contract are not "at will", and may only be terminated according to the clauses contained in the agreement.

What are the Illegal Grounds for Terminating At Will Employment in Maryland?

In a Maryland at-will employment, discrimination is the most common illegal ground for terminating an employee. Termination by an employer cannot be done on the basis of race, nationality, gender, or religion. An employer also may not fire an at-will employee in retaliation for the employee prompting an investigation into discrimination or filing a legal claim of discrimination against the Rockville employer.

Also, under the Family and Medical Leave Act, employers may not terminate employees who have taken leave for family reasons or medical treatment. Finally, employers are prevented from firing an employee because they have exercised a legal right, performed a legal obligation, or have refused to do something that is illegal.
