LITIGATION FOR WRONGFUL TERMINATION
Individuals who have been wrongfully terminated may be eligible to get their job back, back pay, compensation for damages, and other expenses. A wrongful termination suit claims that an employee was fired in violation of the law or the company employment agreement. Often times, these claims are difficult to prove and result in settlements. There are a variety of factors involved in every case so it is important to rely on a qualified and experienced wrongful termination attorney. Mitchell & Sheahan, P.c. can provide you with the representation you need after a termination.
WERE YOU WRONGFULLY TERMINATED BECAUSE OF:
Discrimination - Federal law prohibits employers from firing employees due to discrimination against their age, disability, gender, genetic information, national origin, race, religion, sex, or gender identity. If there is any evidence that you were terminated because of discriminatory reasons, you may have a wrongful termination suit on your hands!
Harassment - If you have ever been harassed because of your age, gender, race, etc. that led to you being let go, a harassment and wrongful termination suit can be filed. Harassment also covers sexual advances and termination because of an ending romantic relationship.
Retaliation - An employer cannot fire an employee for participating in protected practices. These practices include reporting illegal behavior or safety violations, either within the company or to outside organizations. If you were terminated for reporting potential violations or exercising your legal rights, we can help!
Breach of Contract - An employment agree can be a written contract or implied through a detailed employee handbook. Being fired in violation of the details included in the contract can be grounds for a wrongful termination suit.
