  • Wrongful termination

    My wife was fired friday ,the reason given was because she went behind the back of boss b to boss a who was also fired several months ago.She is( was) a warranty administrator for a car dealer and #1 in the disrtrict for warranty claims. she went to work friday and it was a normal day until after lunch when she was called into the office and told that this was her last day and a man from another dealer was taking her place monday. I need to know if we have any recourse.

    No, no recourse. She could have been terminated at any time for any reason except a reason prohibited by law (ie age, race, religion) or unless she had a CBA or employment contract to the contrary.

    It's just like she could have quit at any time for any reason.

    That's at-will employment.

      Going behind your boss's back often leads to termination. Its not illegal.
      Good luck to her in finding another job.

        Agree, that was not a good idea.

          I have said this before but it bears repeating.

          When you go around your boss, you should prepare for one of you not to be there tomorrow. If what you are saying will get your boss fired, fine. If it doesn't, you should probably bring a box to work.

          Talking behind the back of your current boss to another boss is what we refer to as a "career limiting decision".
          Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

          I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

          Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.
