Understanding Wrongful Termination in Milwaukee and San Diego
The term "wrongful termination" or "wrongful dismissal" is a catch all for any employment termination that is found to be illegal. It is not just a firing that feels unfair, or is based on false information. Wrongful termination could describe a termination based on racial or gender discrimination, or it could describe a termination that is done in retaliation for engaging in a legally protected activity.
A "wrongful termination in violation of public policy" is separate from these other types of illegal firings. Sometimes called a Tameny Claim, this law says it is illegal for an employer to terminate your employment because of your refusal to engage in an activity that would violate public policy or for taking action to prevent the violation of public policy.
Determining whether or not the activity in question actually violates public is not a simple answer. There is no precise list of activities that would fall under "public policy." It is important to have an attorney who not only can determine what actions affect public policy, but one who can craft an argument and articulate why the activity in question violates public policy.
