No one wants to lose their job unexpectedly. In most situations, the employment relationship is at-will, which means your employer can terminate you at any time for nearly any reason, except for an unlawful reason. If an employer terminates an employee for an unlawful reason, then this constitutes unlawful termination, and employees might be able to take legal action to protect their rights.
If you believe you were wrongfully terminated, your first call should be to discuss the situation with an unlawful termination attorney near you. Our legal team at Minnis & Smallets, LLP, is dedicated to helping employees obtain legal relief after a wrongful termination. Contact our office to discuss your options in your specific situation.
There are many different reasons that may not be the basis for employment termination, as they violate the law or public policy. Some examples of reasons that might constitute wrongful termination include – but are not limited to – the following:
Often, an employer will deny any of the above reasons for termination and might offer a different reason that is untrue to justify your termination. We know how to challenge these pretextual reasons and provide evidence of the true – and unlawful – reason why you were terminated.
We can identify the best way to hold your employer accountable for wrongful termination. This might include negotiation directly with your employer’s attorney, mediation, arbitration, or filing an unlawful termination lawsuit in civil court. Our attorneys then handle every step of the legal process, which can be complicated and might involve many different employment and labor laws. We will fight until you receive the remedies you deserve after a harmful termination for unlawful reasons.
