Wrongful Termination Claims

Mississippi Wrongful Termination Lawyers

Mississippi is an employment-at-will state. This means anyone who is not working under an employment contract is considered to be employed "at will." An employer may terminate an at-will employee at any time and for any reason, as long as it is not illegal to do so.  If you think you are a victim of wrongful termination, the experienced employee rights attorneys at our law firm, Watson & Norris, PLLC, in Jackson, Mississippi, are ready to help you.

 

Skilled • Professional • Compassionate

 

We fight for the rights and best interests of our clients.

It is illegal for employers to terminate an employee due to:

  • Age
  • Sex
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Pregnancy
  • Disability
  • National origin

In Mississippi, employers are also prevented from terminating employees:

  • who refuse to participate in a criminal activity at work, such as fraud or embezzlement, or
  • who report such illegal activity on the part of their employer to their employer or to anyone else

This special exception to the at-will employment status affecting employees in Mississippi is the result of two important public policy exceptions adopted by the Mississippi Supreme Court in the landmark McArn v. Allied Bruce-Terminex, Inc. case in 1993.
