Knowledgeable litigators handle discrimination and contractual claims
In many cases, employers seek to use the s called “at-will” employment rules to protect themselves from legal liability. This doctrine allows a business to fire workers without providing notice or any justification. However, certain many of dismissals are prohibited under law. We represent workers in wrongful termination cases involving:
- Discrimination — A firing cannot be based on an employee's membership in a legally protected group. We are strong advocates in matters involving discriminatory firings that arise from a worker's age, sex, race, color, religion, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, LGTQ+ status, or other characteristics outlined in federal, state, and local laws. We can also advise you of claims that might exist as well as your options.
- Retaliation — Employees should never be punished for reporting illegal conduct or dangerous conditions at their workplace. If you're a whistleblower who has been fired,
we will investigate if any connection exists between your report and your termination. We can uncover the true motivation for a dismissal even if your employer tries to invent another reason for your firing.
- Contractual violations — Whether an agreement covers an individual employee or a whole group of workers, companies must honor the provisions relating to termination, and in many cases the provisions in an offer letter, employee handbook or manual or other policy at work. Our diligent attorneys can review the relevant contracts and provisions at issues and take action against your former employer if they failed to abide by their legal obligations when releasing you.
Whatever type of work you do, our diligent lawyers will take the time to learn each relevant detail of your situation. From there, we will explain your options and seek fair compensation and other available relief before government boards and state and local agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and in court when necessary.
