What Is Wrongful Termination?
Colorado classifies most employees as “at-will,” which means employers can terminate their employment at any time and without reason. At-will status makes proving wrongful termination difficult, but with the help of our dedicated attorney, you can rest easier knowing you have a knowledgeable guide on your side.
Wrongful termination claims can be brought against a company for several reasons, including:
- Discrimination based on a protected class
- Wage and hour disputes
- Retaliation, such as in a whistleblower case
- Breach of contract
- After a workplace injury
- Sexual harassment or “quid pro quo” situations
- FMLA, jury duty, military or voting leave
- Refusal to provide a safe work environment
Filing A Claim For Wrongful Termination
Claimants must file a complaint with the Colorado Human Rights Commission, located in Denver, which will record the complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The EEOC is the federal commission put in place to investigate workplace discrimination claims. They can bring a lawsuit against your employer in civil court.
