Throughout the United States, including the White Plains, New York, area, there are cases where an employee feels he or she was wrongfully terminated from work. Unless you have a contract with your employer, most employment relationships are "at-will," meaning that the employer may end the relationship at any time without reason or cause. But that does not mean that an employer can't be held accountable for engaging in certain types of discrimination.
