Attorneys Fighting Against Workplace Discrimination
Most employees are hired on an at-will basis, meaning they can be terminated for any nondiscriminatory reason. Under federal, state and local laws, however, employers cannot terminate employees on the basis of their protected class. In other words, it is against the law to discriminate against employees and job applicants.
