Below we’ll list a few different things you want to have gathered if you believe you’ve been wrongfully terminated and want to file a suit.
- If you’re filing for a wrongful termination claim due to a medical reason, then you’ll want to be sure to gather all medical documentation you can. Keep all papers from any medical professionals that are involved in your recovery. Make sure you’ve faxed the paper work and keep a copy of the fax receipt to show whom and when they were sent. Likewise, keep a copy of the paper work from any medical staff you’ve dealt with in your recovery. Documentation helps to prove that you not only received care, but that you went through the proper channels to make sure you did everything by the book. It may also be beneficial to request and keep a record of the paper work of the reason in which you were terminated.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for witnesses or present them. Anyone who may have been present during your termination or may have similar issues with the employer can be beneficial in court to show the character and practices of the business.
- Ask for any reports that were brought against an employer if you feel you were wrongfully terminated due to retaliation of a supervisor, boss or another co-worker. In the event that someone has retaliated against you, it’s wise to have a copy of the report that was made against the co-worker or employee. Most businesses are required to keep copies documenting any time an employee is written up or had to be spoken to about improper conduct in the work place.
