Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Donald Trump has made the dreaded words, "You're Fired' his catch phrase on his reality show, The Apprentice. Outside the bright lights of television, getting fired from a job is never a welcome event. Financial strain and job-search stress are just two of the issues that the newly unemployed face. Companies and work situations are as different as the jobs themselves. Where there is some consistency is when it comes to an unlawful termination. State and federal wrongful termination laws, as well as internal policies (often found in an employee handbook or an employment contract) serve to protect an employee from an illegal firing. Familiarizing yourself with the reasons you can't be fired from your job is always a good place to start.

These are just a few examples of situations that cannot get you fired from your job; and if they do, then the employer is setting himself up for a wrongful termination or wrongful discharge lawsuit, in addition to other legal liability depending on the specific situation. In those instances in which you believe you were fired for an improper purpose, your first step is to document the circumstances under which you were fired. It is also wise to make sure you remain calm; collecting damages will be a more satisfying revenge than any impulsive insult could ever be.
