Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about fired after accusing an employer of an affair:
My previous employer is having an affair, I have noticed what has been going on over the months. I confronted my employer about the affair and was fired due to the accusations. What are my legal rights?
We are sorry to learn you have been fired. What might you do–you asked you say because you were fired after confronting your employer about what you describe as observing her/him having an affair? We answer workplace communication questions, not legal ones. Therefore to learn if you have “legal rights” you need to consult an attorney. However, I doubt that there is any protection against being fired to voicing a complaint about a superior engaging in an affair. Probably the best you can do is not to see yourself as a victim or to gossip about your former employer. Rather update your resume focusing on the projects you’ve completed and skills you have.
