Losing your job can be very stressful, but being forced out of your job is an illegal act. If you have been forced to leave your job, or fired without proper notice, then you may have a case for wrongful termination. In order to make such a claim, you need an experienced lawyer by your side. Rosales Law Firm has helped El Paso residents get what they deserve in court for years. We can help you get the justice you deserve too.
What is Wrongful Termination?
Wrongful termination is a type of workplace discrimination that can take a few different forms. Mainly, it is when an employer terminates the contract, or employment of the employee without following proper procedures. This may look like retaliation against the employee for filing a complaint. Or it can be ending a contract before the agreed date. Another instance can take place when the employee refuses to participate in an illegal activity.
What Can I Do About It?
To start, fighting wrongful termination begins with collecting all the information you can about your job's policies. Most companies have clear protocols about firing, and they are usually included in all the paperwork you sign off on upon hire. If you were given awards for doing a good job, those can help prove that you didn't desire to be fired. Any evidence you collect about the incident can be useful.
How Can a Lawyer Help?
Often times, people have a suspicion of discrimination, but they do not know where to get the proof. A lawyer can help you figure out what you need, and examine what you might already have, too. They know what will help you win a charge of wrongful termination, and they will not be cowed by a big business. Having an experienced lawyer on your side in court increases your chances of having a favorable outcome.
What Are My Rights?
You have the right to be treated fairly as an employee. You also have the right to compensation if your former employer has fired you without just cause or without proper notice. You have the right to report illegal or suspicious activity without fear of retaliation. Most importantly, you deserve justice for wrongful termination.
