If you have a disability and are seeking accommodations, you will be happy to know that there are laws that will ensure you are granted all warranted accommodations.

Accepting employment with a company is generally a straightforward affair, with employees doing the work for which they were hired and employers paying them regularly and on time for their work. However, disputes can arise that may lead to termination. When an employee feels they have been terminated (laid off or fired) unfairly, they may choose to file a lawsuit charging "wrongful discharge."
Most people who sign typical employment contracts agree to "at-will" employment without ever questioning the term. It is only when they face termination that they begin to ask, "What does at-will employment mean?" and "Am I being fired illegally?"
