Breaches of Good Faith and Fair Dealing at Work


If your employer acted unfairly, you may have a claim for a breach of a duty of good faith and fair dealing. Courts have found that employers breached the duty of good faith and fair dealing by:

firing or transferring employees to prevent them from collecting sales commissions
misleading employees about their chances for promotions and wage increases
fabricating reasons for firing an employee when the real motivation is to replace that employee with someone who will work for lower pay
soft-pedaling the bad aspects of a particular job, such as the need to travel through dangerous neighborhoods late at night, and
repeatedly transferring an employee to remote, dangerous, or otherwise undesirable assignments to coerce the employee into quitting without collecting severance pay or other benefits that would normally be due.
