Can I Sue for Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful Termination.png"I just got fired! Can I sue for wrongful termination?" I hear that a lot from people who've lost their jobs and want legal advice about their rights.

Target Settlement Sheds Light on Disparate Impact Discrimination

By now, you've probably read or heard about Target Corporation's agreement to pay $2.8 million to settle an EEOC discrimination charge. Unlike a "disparate treatment" case where the plaintiffs claim that an employer's actions were motivated by discriminatory intent, this was a "disparate impact" case where the EEOC alleged that screening tests used by Target disproportionately excluded applicants on the basis of race and gender and violated the Americans with Disabilities Act.
