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.
Results may vary depending on your particular facts and legal circumstances.
