Q: If I’m fired unfairly, can I file a lawsuit?

A: Maryland is an at-will employment jurisdiction, meaning that the parties can terminate the relationship for any reason so long as it’s not an illegal reason. Illegal reasons include discrimination against employees or retaliating against an employee for reporting illegal activity. Also, if the employment relationship is governed by a contract, the parties can only terminate the relationship according to the terms of the agreement.
