Milwaukee Wrongful Discharge Attornies Wrongful discharge is an often misunderstood area of Wisconsin employment law. This is most likely because many people understand the term "Wrongful Discharge" to broadly include all situations where the employee does not believe that he or she deserved to be fired. Unfortunately, in Wisconsin, wrongful discharge is a very narrow exception to the Employment At-Will Doctrine.

Employment At-Will Doctrine

Employment at will means that an employee may quit his or her job at any time, for any reason or no reason at all. Similarly, an employer may discharge an employee at any time for any reason or no reason at all. Wisconsin employment law cases discussing the Employment At-Will Doctrine explicitly state that an employer may even discharge an employee for a reason that is morally wrong.

In a nutshell, employment law focuses on exceptions to the Employment At-Will Doctrine such as discrimination and retaliation.

What is Wrongful Discharge?

In Wisconsin, wrongful discharge is a narrow exception to the Employment At-Will Doctrine which has been created by case law, not the adoption of any statute. The basic principle is that an employer may not discharge an employee in violation of a well-defined public policy as evidenced by existing law.

There are basically two situations which give rise to a wrongful discharge claim:

1. An Employee is discharged for refusing to violate the law or the spirit of the law.

Examples would include a payroll clerk being fired for refusing an instruction to provide a tax free bonus to a superior or a truck driver who refuses an employer's directive to operate a vehicle without a license.

2. An Employee is discharged for complying with an affirmative legal obligation.

An example would be discharging a nurse at a nursing home for reporting abuse or neglect of residents.
