have you been fired?
If you feel your termination was wrongful, you may have a claim against your employer. At Harris & Helwig, our experienced staff will help you analyze your termination and determine whether or not you have a claim.
Was my termination wrongful?
Most people are presumed to be employees at will, which means you are free to quit for any reason and your employer is free to fire you for almost any reason. Your termination is wrongful, however, if it was the result of any of the following:
- Discrimination on the job, whether motivated by bias concerning race, national origin, ancestry, religion, age, sex, or disability.
- Retaliation for filing a workplace complaint, complaining about unlawful conditions (whistle-blower), forming or organizing a union, or even asserting protected rights such as the right to file a worker's compensation claim or the right to be free from harassment.
