Most employment is considered "at-will." Employers will typically stand behind this phrase and attempt to convince you they have the legal right to terminate your employment for any reason or for no reason at all. While it is true employers have a great deal of control in deciding whom they keep on staff, they still have to follow the law.
Several situations can result in an individual being wrongfully terminated, including:
Terminated after requesting a leave of absence under the FMLA
Terminated while on FMLA leave
Fired in retaliation for complaining about legal violations such as unsafe workplace conditions, failure to pay overtime or failure to pay back wages
Fired after requesting reasonable accommodations as specified in the ADA
Terminated or denied a promotion based on your age, race, gender, religion, disability or national origin
- Terminated in retaliation for refusing to follow a directive that required you to break the law
If you were terminated or denied a promotion based on any of the above situations, contact an attorney who will fight to protect your rights. The Furth Law Firm, P.A. has a great deal of experience defending employees who were terminated wrongfully .
