Securing employment can be an exhausting, time-consuming and expensive process. Once employment begins, commitments of time, energy and talent are valuable contributions you bring to work every day. If you are the victim of wrongful termination, you deserve justice and fair compensation.
Arizona is an employment-at-will state, which means that employers can terminate employment for “good cause” or “no cause,” but not for “bad cause.” Bad cause includes termination based on discrimination, retaliation for whistleblowing or refusal to violate law, or breach of contract, among other things. Employers must also follow the termination limits and procedures laid out in employment contracts.
Government employees are often not “at-will” employees. They have many rights regarding termination. Unlike employees of traditional companies, government employees, after serving a probationary term, can often only be terminated for “cause” and can in many instances appeal their termination.
