Employee Termination in 2023
Employers have always avoided the termination either because it is not easy to terminate someone or because it can be difficult to defend allegations of wrongful termination. Cases of wrongful termination have emerged and increased since the late 2022 year. Research has identified the following factors in this increase:
-Employees more aware and knowledgeable of workplace rights.
-Employees are now aware enough to charge discrimination.
-Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) establishing increased awareness on how employees can make these charges.
-New whistleblower protections for employees who turn in Employers.
-More resources on websites by the Department of Labor (DOL) providing employees with ways to confirm if Employers are violating current regulations.
Because of these and other factors, Employers are now more than ever, at risk of litigation against termination decisions. The EEOC has established definitions and guidelines of what constitutes discrimination and what employees are part of “protected classes” and discrimination claims. Now that there have been additional protections under EEOC, Employers should consider these regulations and prepare for those potential Risks.
