Wrongful Discharge

An employer has a legitimate right to manage its business at it sees fit. That right, however, is not unlimited, and can not be exercised in a manner which denies fundamental American values. Employers do not have the right to discriminate on the basis of race, sex, or age in employment decisions. They should not have the right to fire workers without a legitimate reason. Free expression, equal protection, and due process are the basic rights of all Americans. The loss of freedom to an individual is just as great when it is done by a corporation as when it is done by the government.
