toxic work environment


I’m a probationary employee for a state government job, and have discovered I’m in a toxic work environment that is out of my control. While I’m looking for new employment, I’m wondering what legal rights I have if I am frivolously terminated with no evidence of wrongdoing. I’m a veteran, which may be part of the issue (since I’m pretty sure my vet preference landed me this job over their preferred candidate, but I have no proof of this).

When we're talking about employment rights, there's a lot of ground to cover. Your rights may vary depending on any number of factors like age, gender, disabilities, veteran status and a whole lot more. If you're terminated and you think that your basic rights have been violated, you should speak with an attorney who has expertise in employer/employee disputes and law. The attorney will be able to advise you if you have a case...or maybe not. Good luck.
