In many cases, an employer fires an employee for legitimate reasons after they have been given warnings about their performance. However, there are instances when an employer wrongfully fires an employee and feels they don’t have to explain their reasoning for doing so. Often times, this termination was wrongful and it can impact the employee in a number of ways. Once an employee has been dismissed from employment, it can be difficult to ask questions about the reasons for this choice and to hold the employer responsible. For those reasons, it is important to have wrongful termination lawyers on your side to help in the event that this happens to you. An attorney can help get you the rights and fair treatment you deserve from your employer.
What is wrongful termination?
Wrongful termination, or wrongful dismissal or discharge, occurs when an employer terminates a contract with an employee, breaching of one or more of the terms of said contract, or employment law. As long as each party upholds their end of the contract, and there is no reason for the employment to end, the employer should not cancel the agreement and release the employee. When an employer abruptly stops employment, it is not only a violation of the contractual agreement, but it creates an unnecessarily burdensome situation for the employee. If the employee has abided by the terms of the contract, the employer should do the same. It can be difficult for an employee to hold the employer responsible, so wrongful termination lawyers should be consulted to handle this part of the process. They can work on your behalf to ensure that the employer is following the contract as they have agreed they would. Wrongful termination lawyers are familiar with employment law and have the expertise to determine when an employer is in violation of it.
