Elsewhere in the Courts: Wrongful Termination

A company is not liable for firing an employee who filed a workplace injury claim in the midst of an internal investigation. The investigation proved that the employee had embezzled money so he was fired. The employee sued claiming that he was fired for making a workers’ compensation claim. The court ruled that even if the employee’s injury claim was valid, the company had a legitimate reason for the termination and was not liable for wrongful termination.
