A company reorganization is no excuse to illegally fire someone

Group-female-employees.jpg

Many companies go through reorganizations, reductions in force, and layoffs. This is not unusual.

However, some companies use a reduction in force as an excuse to fire certain individuals or groups of employees for discriminatory purposes. This is illegal.

An employer cannot use a reorganization or downsizing to fire an employee on the basis of:

· Gender

· Age

· Race

· National origin

· Sexual orientation

· Religion

· Pregnancy

· Medical condition

· Disability

· Association with a disabled family member or co-worker

Remember: Your employer can fire you for any reason - except if that reason is discriminatory in nature. You may have a lawsuit if you were illegally fired during a reduction in force.
