How to File a Claim for Wrongful Termination In Nevada
You can file a wrongful termination case with either the Nevada Equal Rights Commission (NERC) or the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) if you believe that you were fired illegally. This is the first step in addressing workplace wrongdoing. It’s based on a legal concept called “exhaustion” and you will need to go through mediation to try to resolve the dispute. When you think of your termination and still say “I Was Wrongfully Terminated”, this is the best route to take.
If you are unhappy with the outcome of mediation through NERC and the EEOC you can file a wrongful-termination lawsuit against your employer. You could be eligible to receive attorney’s fees you have paid and any back pay you may be entitled to. You may also be eligible for equitable relief such as reinstatement to your previous job.
It is important to note that there is a statute that limits the time you can file a claim for wrongful termination. Your claim will be forever barred if you don’t take the appropriate action in time through the court or agency.
