Wrongful Termination

What is Wrongful Termination? 

South Carolina is an at-will employment state. An employee can bring a claim for wrongful termination in South Carolina, even if they are at-will, in certain specific circumstances, though. These include: 

    1. When a termination violates the law. 
    2. When a person is terminated for refusing to violate the law. 
    3. When a termination violates some other clear mandate of public policy.

Our firm’s attorneys are trail blazers in this field, and we know how to determine when a termination is wrongful under the law. Whether an employee is “at-will” or whether this is a “right-to-work” state has no bearing on the ultimate question of whether a termination qualifies for a claim of wrongful termination under the law. 

Therefore, if you feel you were terminated due to discriminatory or unlawful reasons,  our attorneys can are here and ready to advocate on your behalf.

Examples of Wrongful Termination 

  • Termination based on political affiliation

  • Termination based on gender, race, age, religion, or disability 

  • Termination based on retaliation, such as blowing the whistle on illegal practices in the organization or making an internal complaint 

  • Termination that violated the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
