What exactly is your question?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I guess my question is..can I sue an individual *and a corporation* for wrongful termination (and all the hardships that have resulted)..the corporation being sued for "backing" the immed.supervisor who terminated me.
Expert:  MDLaw replied 7 years ago.
You can sue them for wrongful termination but it is only a wrongful termination if one of the following applies:
1. You had an employment contract and they violated the terms of that contract in terminating you.
2. You were discriminated against based on your race, age, gender, national origin, disability, religion.
3. It was a public policy violation to terminate you, i.e. you were terminated for refusing to violate a law.
