Know Your Employee Rights in New York

The term “wrongful termination” is misleading because in New York and most other states, without a written agreement for a specific term, employment is “at will.” The law allows your employer to fire you on a whim or for a totally arbitrary reason.

This means that employers can fire or terminate you for any reason, or for no reason at all, unless:

(1) Your rights are protected under employment discrimination laws. Employers cannot discriminate against you on the basis of age, sex or gender, race, national origin, disability or perceived disability, pregnancy status, marital status, or sexual orientation.

(2) You have an employment contract, either written or implied, with the employer, who agreed that you cannot be fired without just cause for a specific period of time. The terms of the contract will usually determine the reasons for which you can be fired.

Otherwise, employers may terminate employees for any reason or for no reason. Employers may fire you if they don’t like you, or even if they just don’t like the clothes you’re wearing. In other words, it is not illegal for employers to be “mean” or to be “wrong” when they fire you.
