Dealing with an Employee’s Claim of Wrongful Termination
Even if an employee is in their probationary period, or lacks the protection of Civil Service or a contract, an employee can still bring a lawsuit after they have been terminated. Employees can successfully claim that they were terminated for discriminatory reasons, or because they were “whistleblowers”, or can claim that their termination violated “public policy”. Employers must keep in mind that no matter the status of the employee, they must have documented good reasons for any termination. Our attorneys can assist in pre-termination consultations, and in representing employers who are sued. Employment claims are varied and often complicated by extenuating circumstances. Because of the difficult situations these cases can cause, it is essential to obtain the assistance of an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
