Employees “at will” in Indiana

Indiana is an “at will” state which means employers can fire employees without prior notification for many different reasons. The only reasons that cannot be used as grounds for firing an employee in Indiana include: Race, National Origin, Religious Beliefs, Sex, Age and Disability. Additionally, an injured worker cannot be fired for requesting worker’s compensation benefits nor for whistleblowing (for example, an employee who reports a company safety violation to OSHA and then is terminated as a result) which may be considered retaliatory discharge. An employee terminated on these bases may file a lawsuit against his or her employer.
