There are a lot of things that can happen in the workplace that may require you to seek legal counsel to help resolve them. Incidents such as accidents in the workplace can and do happen and often necessitate legal counsel to have them settled in your favor. One thing that not many people are aware of in the workplace is that you have the right to seek legal recourse if you feel you have been wrongfully terminated.

 

 

What is Wrongful Termination?

There is nothing more frustrating for a person than to be let go from their job for something that they were falsely accused of. You may even have been wrongly terminated for doing something that was a direct order from a superior or other high ranking member of management. Why should you be made to suffer from an uncertain financial future because of something you were instructed to do or were falsely accused of; the answer is you shouldn’t. If this is the case, then you have every right to protect yourself by retaining legal counsel. The lawyers at Dawson & Ozanne are standing by waiting to talk to you. We are experienced attorneys that can assist you with your wrongful termination claim.

 

‘At Will Employment’ Does Not Mean You Have No Rights

Employment is usually done by an implied unwritten contract and is termed “at will employment”; this simply means that under “most conditions” and under any circumstances or for any reason, an employer may terminate you. As with most things, there are always exceptions and termination can sometimes be ruled ‘wrongful termination’ or ‘illegal termination’. That is where getting advice from a lawyer who specializes in wrongful termination comes in handy. A lawyer can help you determine if you have the basis for a wrongful termination case against your former employer.

Wrongful Termination Indicators

A skilled lawyer in wrongful termination will take a look at many things to determine if you have reason to bring suit against your old employer. They will look at such things as:

  • If you have a favorable documented employment history
  • How long you have been with the company and if you have been receiving regular promotions or other types of favorable employee recognition
  • If you have been performing poorly, did your employer talk to you about it and give you a fair chance to improve your performance
  • Were you intentionally put into a situation where you had a much higher chance of failure and the employer knew this
  • Were you fired for such things as race, creed, or any other prejudice
  • If you were given written or verbal guarantees for employment advancement and the employer terminated you to avoid paying the additional salary or benefits

These are all things that can be labeled as wrongful termination and could be used to get you some form of monetary compensation from your old employer who terminated you illegally.

Wrongful termination is too important a matter to just ignore. It is hard these days to find a good job and start at a pay level that it is commensurate with your old job and experience. No one should have to start over when they did nothing wrong. At Dawson & Ozanne, our experienced attorneys can assist you with your wrongful termination claim.
