If you have been the victim of discrimination, on the basis of your age, race, religion, gender, pregnancy, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation or marital status, or if you have been the target of defamation or sexual harassment, breach of contract or wrongful termination, the team at Rice Law can help.
New Hampshire is an “employment at will” state, which means that without an employment contract you can be terminated at any time, for any reason, with our without notice.
However, there are some limitations to this. You cannot be terminated in violation of the law on the basis of a protected class, like age, race, religion, gender, pregnancy, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation or marital status, or for doing something the public would applaud or refusing to do something the public would condemn. You can't be treated unfairly, harassed, punished or terminated for these reasons or for taking advantage of your rights under Workers' Compensation, Family Medical Leave Act or a host of other state and/or federal laws. Employers also must follow their own policies and guidelines for termination, if they have binding written policies in place.
Whether you or someone you know has suffered physical injuries, lost wages or benefits, harm to reputation, diminished earnings, or emotional distress as a result of discrimination, harassment, a demotion or transfer, layoff or termination as a result of wrong doing by a co-worker, supervisor or employer, there may be help available.
