Not all unfair or unjustified terminations or suspensions are wrongful terminations that can be sued over. Only decisions to fire an employee that violate public policy may be challenged in court. The most common wrongful terminations that violate public policies are those employment decisions that follow an employees opposition to (or protest against) unlawful activities of his employer or supervisor. Employees that are fired for their whistleblowing may sue their employers for wrongful terminations in violation of public policy. Examples of wrongful terminations include employees fired for objecting to violence, sexual harassment or discrimination, fraud, dangerous conditions and health and safety problems.
