Steady employment is necessary for many families to make ends meet. Being laid off from your job is undoubtedly stressful, but being wrongfully terminated only makes the situation that much worse. Wrongful termination or “dismissal” as it is often called, comes in many shapes and forms, including, but not limited to, discrimination, as a means of punishment for whistleblowing, or in a way that violates state and federal employment laws. If you believe you may be been wrongfully terminated from your job, the information below should help answer some of the questions you may have. However, to have a more thoroughly understanding of your situation and whether or not you have been wrongfully terminated, it is essential to speak with an attorney.
Wrongful Termination Attorneys
At Nathan M. Smith & Associates, PLLC, our attorneys provide legal representation to clients who have been wrongfully terminated from their jobs for a variety of reasons. To determine whether or not you may have been wrongfully terminated, our employment law attorneys will evaluate your case as thoroughly as possible. Our attorneys understand that you do not want to devote all of your time to a lawsuit, especially when you need to spend time finding and hopefully getting another job.
Many wrongful termination cases can be resolved outside of the courtroom through negotiation and settlement. This reduces a lot of stress that is associated with going through a lawsuit. Our employment law attorneys have helped numerous clients overcome wrongful termination, and cases rarely have the same set of facts. For example, going to trial may turn out to be best for your situation, whereas settling a case before reaching the courthouse steps may be best for another person.
Regardless of how minor or serious you believe your situation is, you need to be aware of your rights and what options you have for asserting wrongful termination. All too often, employers get away with wrongful termination simply because employees do not know that they have the ability to hold their employer responsible, or even that they have been wrongfully terminated. Unfortunately, employees are not adequately informed about their rights and when an employer may be held accountable for wrongful termination. With the assistance of an attorney, however, you will not have to worry about these details, but instead can rely on your attorney’s expertise and dedication to look out for your best interests.
