Maryland At-Will Employment

Maryland is an at-will employment state, which means that in most circumstances an employment relationship can be terminated by either the employer or employee for any reason, or no reason at all. This means that even terminations that seem unfair may not be illegal.

Maryland Wrongful Termination Claims

youarefired Despite the at-will doctrine, there are situations in which firing an employee could meet the definition of a wrongful termination. Employers cannot fire employees for discriminatory reasons, such as for their race, gender, national origin, age, disability or marital status. Furthermore, employees cannot be fired for asserting or enforcing their rights, such as their right to overtime or minimum wage, their right to a safe workplace or their right to file a workers' compensation claim.

Employees also cannot be fired for refusing to commit a criminal act, for reporting for military service or for reporting for jury duty.

If employees have an express contract, they cannot be fired for reasons or situations that are contrary to those stated in the contract, agreement or policy.

Violations of any of these circumstances may result in a wrongful termination lawsuit being filed against the employer.
