Executive Termination: If You’ve Been Fired or Face That, Do You Have a Claim for Wrongful Termination?
On Friday May 27, 2022, the executive career advancement website IvyExec published an article I wrote on “Executive Termination: If You’ve Been Fired or Face That, Do You Have a Claim for Wrongful Termination?”
This new article is designed not only for C-level and senior executives, but even for many directors and mid-level executives.
My article makes the point that most executive employment in the USA is “at will” employment. That means you can be fired at any time for any reason or no reason. However, you cannot be fired for the wrong reason. If you are fired for the wrong reason, despite being an at-will employee, you may have a claim for wrongful termination.
What is wrongful termination? My article mentions a number of things an employer can do that could give rise to a wrongful termination claim, including these:
In addition, you might potentially obtain damages if you quit employment over a hostile work environment or if conditions which have been made so difficult that you can claim constructive discharge.
After the discussion of potential claims, my article in its second part offers suggestions to you on what you might potentially seek in wrongful termination case or in settlement or severance negotiations with your employer

IvyExec hosts articles and webinars from experts in the career, leadership, and business spaces who wish to share their knowledge with our audience. In April 2021, I was invited to write for IvyExec since it seeks original content on the topics of career development, leadership, and business strategy as it applies to senior-level and C-Suite professionals. IvyExec blog posts and webinars are shared with its community of more than 2 million members on its website, in its newsletter, and on its social media channels. https://www.ivyexec.com/career-advice/write-for-us/
IvyExec claims a “Community of 2.5M+ Leaders”.
It is my hope that this article will be of benefit to C-level and senior executives who have been fired or may face employment termination in situations where you might have a claim for severance based on various potential claims for wrongful termination if you have been fired or constructive discharge if you feel forced to resign… Feel free to tweet or share this article. If you or any colleague of yours has a need in this area, please do reach out to me.
Last Tuesday, on April 27, 2021, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Don’t Let Disparagement or Defamation Blackball Your Executive Career Prospects”.
This new article is designed for CEOs, C-level and senior executives, who may face, on occasion, issues of disparagement and even defamation, in connection with employment termination. For those executives who do face this prospect at the time of employment termination, disparagement or defamation can have effects on your career and prospects, both short and long term, that can be even more far reaching than how much severance will be paid.
The article first discusses three such situations that faced C-level and senior executive clients of mine in recent representations and our successful resolution of each, as follows:

This was my 33rd article published in CEOWORLD since 2016. Previously, the editor advised that I can use “Featured in the CEOWORLD magazine” and the CEOWORLD “Logo” on my website and add CEOWORLD magazine in my LinkedIn profile’s “Experience Section” as an “Opinion Columnist.” and authority in the field.
On its own initiative, CEOWORLD magazine created on their website a library of Robert Adelson published articles. You can peruse this library and/or read as many of my 33 published articles as you wish. See https://ceoworld.biz/author/robert-adelson/
It is my hope that this article will be of benefit to CEOs, C-level and senior executives who at some point in their career might face disparagement or defamation, which if not properly dealt with could seriously derail an otherwise successful and rising career. So, my hope is that this article will offer insights on these important matters. Feel free to share this article.
