Overview of Wrongful Termination
Kentucky is an “at will” employment state, meaning that an employer can terminate an employee at any time, for any reason or no reason at all. Most employees are considered “at will” employees, unless they have entered into a written contract with their employer dictating the length and terms of their employment. However, there are a number of exceptions to the “at will” employment doctrine.

An employer cannot terminate an employee for:
  • Discriminatory reasons
  • Filing a workers’ compensation claim
  • Complaining about discrimination or harassment
  • Reporting illegal activities in the workplace
  • Refusing to violate the law in the course of employment
  • Requesting medical leave or an accommodation
  • Pregnancy and related medical conditions
There are many exceptions to “at-will” employment that could render your termination wrongful or illegal. If you believe you were wrongfully terminated, you may be entitled to compensation from your employer.
