  • Wyoming courts are typically eager to protect whistleblowers from retaliation when they seek to report unlawful activity in the workplace. See Whistleblower Protections.
  • Wyoming courts interpret just cause for termination as a matter of reasonability on behalf of the employer. See Termination for Cause.
  • Wyoming employers who seek to discharge a large number of employees or close a facility altogether may have to comply with the federal WARN Act. In Wyoming, those employers must notify the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services. See Layoffs, Reductions in Force and Plant Closings.
  • Wyoming statutes proscribe retaliation for engaging in lawful activities in many different scenarios. See Retaliation.
