Wrongful Termination

A number of federal, state and local laws prohibit employers from firing an employee for an illegal reason. For example, it is illegal to fire an employee because that person complained about sexual harassment, or the employer’s failure to pay the employee his or her promised wages or overtime, or because the employee attended jury duty.

Wrongful termination is prohibited by a variety of laws and each law has specific requirements, such as deadlines for filing complaints and procedures for bringing those complaints. Some laws that provide relief to employees who have been wrongfully terminated have very short deadlines for filing claims.

For this reason, if you believe that you were wrongfully terminated by your employer, you should have your case evaluated by an experienced employment attorney as soon as possible. You can contact me about your case here.
