What is wrongful termination?

Wrongful termination is the firing of an employee without cause, when there was evidence that the employee could not be terminated without good cause. When an employee is wrongfully terminated, they may be able to sue for lost wages. An employee can initiate a case when they feel that they have been let go without reason, and that they could only be fired for good cause at the time of hiring.
