Massachusetts is an at-will state which means that employers can terminate your employment for almost any reason at almost any time. Almost. Some Massachusetts employers have contracted employees rather than at-will employees. State and federal laws prohibit an employer from terminating an employee for unlawful reasons – such as for being a member of a protected class or engaging in protected activities
A claim for wrongful termination can also arise when an employer violates the terms of an employment contract. These claims can carry short and strict time limitations. We urge you to consult with one of our attorneys today if you believe you have been or will be wrongfully terminated.
