What Is At-Will Employment?

In the state of Washington, both the employee and employer can terminate the employment relationship at any time. This is what is called "at-will employment." It is important to note, however, that this does not excuse an employer from discharging an employee for reasons that are in violation of statutory and common laws. When it comes to filing a suit for wrongful termination, the state requires substantial evidence that overwhelmingly proves the claims made. With years of experience, Sapphire Legal, PLLC has both the knowledge and experience to provide you with sound legal counsel.

Common grounds for wrongful termination include:

  • Workers' compensation retaliation: You have a legal right to file a workers' compensation claim, yet some employers may wrongfully retaliate against employees who exercise this right.
  • Violations of public policy: Public policy refers to the social norms and behaviors that are agreed to be characteristic of a good citizen, including voting, refusing to commit a crime or harm to another, or reporting unethical and illegal practices.
  • Whistleblower retaliation: Employees who report unsafe or illegal practices at their jobs are often subject to retaliation, which can include termination.
  • Discrimination: This includes discrimination against your race, gender, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, religion, sex, and/or gender.

If you suspect that you have been wrongfully terminated, call our Mill Creek employment law attorney at (425) 324-3586.

    Happy Client

  • Best Attorney, so grateful she is on my side.

    “Meeting Kristi has changed my life. When my Mom passed away, the Life Insurance denied my claim. After hiring Kristi she was able to settle the claim fast and efficienty, even after another attorney had failed. She is extremely attentive, kind, yet makes things happen. I immedietly hired her on a property division case and she is often working on my case until 1 am, and responding to my emails on Sunday nights. I plan to hire her for all my legal needs for the rest of my life. I can not say enough how much she has helped me. Kristi is extremely hard working and dedicated to her trade. I would recommend her to all my family and friends.”

Upon having our first conversation she knew exactly what steps needed to be taken and promptly helped us resolve our situation.
