Wrongful Termination

We Have a Proven Record of Winning Our Cases

One of our former clients discovered that his employer, the University of Medicine and Dentistry at New Jersey, was conducting an unethical moneymaking scheme. When our client refused to participate, his career took a nosedive. First, he was demoted from his prestigious job as the head of cardiology. When his contract expired, the university let him go.

People lose their jobs all the time. It’s one of the unfortunate realities of the working world. But our client was demoted and fired not because of his performance, but because he protested an unethical practice at the company. Fortunately, he called O’Connor, Parsons, Lane & Noble.

Attorney Greg Noble handled his case and helped him fight for justice. The story appeared on the front page of the New Jersey Star-Ledger and even launched a probe by a United States Attorney.

Our client was awarded $2.2 million.

Wrongful Termination and You

Wrongful termination refers to a situation where a person is fired for an illegal reason. Refusal to participate in an illegal or unethical scheme is no reason to fire someone. For example, you may have been wrongfully terminated if your firing violates a contract signed with your employer, if your employer is violating their own stated policy, or if you were the victim of harassment or discrimination.

There are many situations in which being fired may actually qualify as wrongful termination. If you suspect that you lost your job for an unfair or illegal reason, an attorney can help. An experienced lawyer will listen to your story and help you determine the best course of action, including appealing your case with your former employer or even filing a lawsuit.

If you were the victim of wrongful termination, you may be entitled to a significant amount of financial compensation, just like our client who won $2.2 million.
