If the suit is based on termination in violation of an employment contract, the statute of limitations would be the same as that for any lawsuit for breach of contract: 6 years. If it is based on employment discrimination, it generally would be 3 years, though since missing a statute of limitations could doom a case entirely, anyone who thinks they may have a lawsuit should consult with an attorney *immediately* about the specifics of his or her case, in order to ascertain how long he or she may have to bring a claim. There is almost never any reason to delay or not consult with an attorney right away, if there might be claim or cause of action.
