In the state of New York, most employees are considered to be working "at will" and can be fired without reason. That said, you cannot be fired for an improper or illegal reason. Wrongful termination can occur:
- When you are fired in violation of your employment contract or collective bargaining agreement
- When you are fired for discriminatory reasons like age, sex, or race
- When you are fired for raising concerns about discriminatory, illegal, or unsafe conduct in your workplace
