Bruce’s Summary: Yes. After an employee quits they can sue an employer for discriminatory termination and if the court finds that “working conditions became so unbearable that a reasonable employee would have no choice but to quit” or if the employer has behaved “in a manner that effectively communicates to an employee that she will be terminated,” the employee could win the suit. When disciplining an employee, let proceedings play out and “do not take any actions that would communicate to the employee your present intent to fire him or her, even if you expect termination to be the result.” “None of the information contained herein should be construed as legal advice, nor are Calvin Associates consultants engaged to offer legal advice.
