  • Wrongful Termination: Explained

    Wrongful termination is the term used to describe situations when an employee feels they have been wrongfully terminated from their job. As attorneys, we defend those that feel they have been wronged, which could mean the employer or the employee. When representing the employee, we may argue various reasons that the employer broke the law, discriminated against or committed a breach of contract by terminating you. When representing the employer, we defend against claims of wrongful termination when the employee was fired in a completely legal manner. Additionally, an employee may have a wrongful termination claim they’ve lost their job because of:

  • • Making a workers’ comp claim or exercising rights under workers’ compensation laws

    • Joining a union or engaging in union-related activity

    • Be chosen to serve jury duty

  • • Blowing the whistle on improprieties within the company

    • Refusal to commit crimes or violate public policies.

    • Age, race, gender, religion or sexual orientation

  • Please contact our staff with your questions about employment law and wrongful termination.
