Was it Wrongful Termination?
Many firings people believe to be wrongful are not actually illegal. To file a wrongful termination suit, you have to prove that you were fired under unlawful circumstances. Some actions in the workplace are considered “protected activities,” including:
- Reporting sexual harassment
- Sexual harassment or discrimination
- Protected family leave
- Filing a worker’s compensation claim
- Whistle blowing on illegal or unethical activities
If you were fired for any of the above reasons, it’s possible you were wrongfully terminated. Wrongful discharge is difficult to prove, but documentation helps. So does hiring an experienced employment attorney.
