Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi, I'm Heather, an attorney with 15 years experience and I can assist for informational purposes.
Indiana is an employment at will state. This means that your employer can fire you at any reason, unless a contract or law provides otherwise. If you have an employment contract that your employer has signed that discusses reasons for your termination of employment, and if this is not in the contract, then the firing was improper. Likewise, if you were fired for a reason that is unlawful, that would be improper. Normally, this would be discriminatory type reasons, like firing someone for race, or finding out that the person is of a certain religion. Firing for the reason you described is not something that I have ever heard is an unlawful reason to fire.
Has that answered your question?
