If you have lost your job but do not believe the circumstances or your actions warranted termination, you may have been wrongfully terminated.
With decades of experience, we can help determine if you have been the victim of a wrongful termination. We are familiar with and understand both state and federal employment and labor laws, and know how to gather the necessary information and documentation that may prove wrongdoing by your employer.
What is Wrongful Termination?
It is illegal for an employer to let go or fire an employee on the basis of age, religion, sexual orientation, or race, but wrongful termination can also occur when:
- You are fired while under contract with specific details concerning discharge
- You are fired due to your marital status or if you become pregnant
- You are fired due to a disability
- You are fired in retaliation for having taken a medical or other leave under the FMLA statute
- You are fired in retaliation for reporting sexual or other prohibited types of harassment
If an employer alleges misconduct, it is helpful to consult the employee resource manual, which should be made available by the employer.
