An employer can’t terminate an employee if the termination is based on illegal discrimination, retaliation for opposing illegal activities, or violations of public policy. Unions members more often than not have “just cause” termination clauses in their collective bargaining agreements that requires employers to show significant workplace misconduct before they terminate an employee. An employer can’t fire an employee if there is an employment contract in place that provides that the employee can’t be fired unless there is just cause.
