Fighting For Employees In Wrongful Termination Claims
Losing your job is never easy. An unfair termination can be a major setback in your career. It’s all the more difficult when the termination was illegal or in violation of an employment agreement or public policy.
Standing up for your rights can seem intimidating, especially if your employer is a large or powerful company with a strong legal team. You need capable advocates to oppose them in pursuit of justice.
At Schonbrun Seplow Harris Hoffman & Zeldes, LLP, our attorneys are passionate about protecting the rights of employees. Since 1990, we have fought for justice on behalf of employees in many roles and industries. We can fight for you too.
What Counts As Wrongful Termination?
Most employment relationships are at-will, meaning either side can terminate the relationship at any time, for almost any reason. However, there are important exceptions to that rule. Both state and federal law prohibit employers from terminating employees for reasons involving:
- Discrimination on certain protected grounds, including race, religion, national origin, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age and disability
- Retaliation against an employee who engaged in a protected activity such as whistleblowing
Additionally, the terms of your employment agreement may provide grounds for a wrongful termination claim.
Let Us Fight For The Compensation You Deserve
Depending on the details of your claim, you may be entitled to significant compensation, including:
- Economic damages to compensate you for the financial losses you’ve incurred as a result of your termination
- Punitive damages to punish your employer for wrongdoing and deter other employers from engaging in wrongful termination
You can count on our lawyers to skillfully pursue the full compensation you deserve.
