The lawyers at Blank & Moorstein, LLP have been defending the rights of wrongfully terminated employees for over 25 years. Even though Maryland and Washington, D.C. are both "at-will employment" jurisdictions, there are still situations where an employee can challenge their terminations.
"At-will employment" means that your employer can terminate you at any time and for any reason. However, you may have a wrongful termination claim if you were terminated as a result of a wrongful act (such as discrimination or retaliation) by your employer.Experienced Employment Law Lawyers
