Phoenix Wrongful Termination Lawyer
Arizona is an at-will employment state, which means that unless you have an employment contract, your employer does not have an obligation to keep you employed. At-will employees may be fired from their jobs for any number of reasons, or they may be fired for no reason at all. Your employment status is up to your employer’s discretion; however, employers are prohibited from terminating your employment for illegal reasons.
If you believe that your employer illegally terminated your employment, a Phoenix wrongful termination attorney at the Zoldan Law Group PLLC can help. Our Arizona employment law attorneys represent employees in all types of employment law matters, including wrongful termination.

Types Of Wrongful Termination
Discrimination is one of the most common causes of wrongful termination. Under federal and Arizona state laws, protections are in place to prohibit employers from discriminating against employees. For example, employment laws prohibit your employer from terminating your employment based on pregnancy, military status, race, gender, or age. If your employer fired you based on one of these or any other discriminatory basis, you have been wrongfully terminated.
If you had an employment contract and your employer violated the terms of the contract by firing you, you may have a wrongful termination claim based on breach of contract. Your employer is also prohibited from firing you or otherwise punishing you for exercising your legal rights, such as your right to:
- Make a sexual harassment complaint
- Make a discrimination complaint
- Take FMLA time off
- Report wage and hour violations
- Request reasonable disability accommodations
- File a workers’ compensation claim
How We Can Help With Remedies And Compensation
Recoverable compensation for wrongful termination depends on the specific facts of your case. Our goal is to maximize your compensation and legal remedies. We will handle every aspect of your claim with that goal in mind. Available compensation may include reinstatement of employment, lost wages, lost benefits, emotional damages, and punitive damages.
Even if you quit your job, you may still have a wrongful termination claim. Constructive discharge, also known as constructive termination, occurs when an employee’s work environment is made to be so difficult that the employee has to leave his or her job. Constructive discharge may also occur when an employer’s conduct towards an employee is so hostile and offensive that he or she is forced to quit. In cases of constructive discharge, employers may still be liable for wrongful termination.
