There's a need for a wrongful termination attorney to be consulted whenever an employee feels that his or her rights have been violated in the separation of their employment. Wrongful termination is a very broad term as used, and what it's meant to convey is the broad range of laws that give employees legal rights to claim that their employment termination was unlawful, typically under some federal or state statute. These claims may range from breach of employment contract that the employee had with the employer to claims of discrimination based on race, sex, age, religion, disability, or pregnancy. The most common questions I get on wrongful termination cases is whether the employee's unfair treatment gives rise to a legal cause of action that can be pursued. My role in those particular cases are to identify whether the client has a legal cause of action that could be asserted against the employer for termination of employment. When I believe a client has a valid case for wrongful termination, if we are unable to resolve the case, and I believe the case will be worthy of further pursuing, we might pursue the case in court to address the client's legal rights.
