  • Wrongful Termination? Nevada

    I'm an aviation mechanic and was terminated for making a minor mistake. In the month before, a couple of employees made mistakes that cost the company thousands of dollars and they didn't get fired. Even though Nevada is an "at will" state is my termination right? I would appreciate any input, thanks.

    P.S. The demograghic make up of the company is that, out of approximately 27 employees, I'm the only one that's not white.

    It may or may not be "right". But based on the information in your post, it was not illegal.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Agree, you can be terminated at any time for any reason except a reason prohibited by law (ie age, religion, gender) or unless you have a binding employment contract or CBA to the contrary.

      All employees do not have to be treated the same as long as you aren't discriminated against due to a protected "class."

      File for unemployment ins. & look for other employment. Good luck.
      Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
