One of the most common legal issues employers are forced to deal with is employment law disputes. Due to the nature of the employer-employee relationship, disputes regarding overtime pay, unpaid wages, and wrongful termination, just to name a few, often arise.

Many employers make the initial mistake of trying to handle employment disputes independently, often in an attempt to minimize costs. However, employment matters encompass a broad range of legal issues that can be overly complex and confusing for employers to handle independently.

Why Should My Business Have an Employment Law Attorney?

What Should Employers Know About the Arizona Employment Protection Act?

Even though Arizona is a right-to-work state, state law also dictates that an employer has the legal right to terminate an employee for any reason or no reason. Arizona employment law stipulates that the employer can terminate an employee with or without notice.

However, state employment law also directs that an employer may not terminate an employee for any reason that violates the Arizona Employment Protection Act (AEPA).

If an employee believes they have been wrongfully terminated under the AEPA, they must prove one of the following:

  • Their termination is in breach of a qualifying employment contract.
  • Their termination directly violated a specific statute contained within the AEPA.
  • Their termination was retaliatory in nature.

As an employer, you will undoubtedly have to make decisions about hiring and firing employees. However, it is always wise to consult with an employment law attorney to make well-informed decisions regarding how and when it is appropriate to terminate an employee. Only an attorney can provide accurate legal advice and ensure your business complies with state and federal laws.
