The 2 sides of wrongful termination

With wrongful termination laws varying from one state to the next, it is important to know how things work where your company is located. Many of our Florida readers are well aware that there are wrongful termination lawsuits filed in the Sunshine State every year; however, they don't understand what these entail and that there are two parties fighting for what they believe is right.

If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated from your position, such as for discrimination related to race or age, it is important to speak with your company's human resources department without delay. By logging a formal complaint, you are taking the first step in strengthening your position should you decide to file a lawsuit in the future.

In addition to learning more about wrongful termination laws by contacting the state's department of labor, seeking the advice and guidance of attorney is a step that many people take early in the process.

It is important to note that an employer will not likely admit that they wrongfully terminated an employee. Instead, they will stick to their side of the story, no matter what it may be, in an attempt to avoid a lawsuit in which they may have to pay out money to the person who was terminated.

Every wrongful termination case has two sides, with the person who was let go feeling that they should be compensated for one reason or the next. Anybody who finds him or herself in this position may wish to speak with an attorney about what employee rights are protected by law.
