Wrongful termination has become an unfortunate reality that all too many employees have been saddled with.

Despite the fact that all states have adopted an “at-will” policy within their set of labor standards, it is against the law if you are terminated for an illegal reason.
Understanding the employment regulations in Maine
If you take a look at the state’s official employment regulations, it’s stated that “under Maine law, an at-will employee may be terminated for any reason not specifically prohibited by law.” While this particular section permits employees to quit their jobs without giving advanced notice, it also signifies that an employer can generally fire their staff members without giving much justification. However, it is still illegal for an employer to terminate an employee because they have opposed discriminatory behavior or participated in an investigation of discrimination. It is also illegal for an employer to terminate an employee because they have complained of and illegal practice or unsafe work condition. If you feel as though you’ve fallen victim to mistreatment, and would like to explore remedies for retaliation or whistleblower retaliation, don’t hesitate to reach out an attorney at the Law Office of Guy D.
