Wrongful termination: Have your rights been violated?

Making a wrongful termination claim is not something you dream of, as this means you are out of a job. It also means that your company may have violated the law in one way or another.

Here is something to remember: not every job termination is considered illegal. You may think your employer was unfair in terminating your employment, but in most cases, they were within their legal rights. Of course, there are times when it makes sense to file a wrongful termination claim.

It is illegal to be terminated or forced to quit as the result of the following:

-- Filling for workers' compensation benefits

-- Discrimination related to race, religion, gender, color or another protected class

-- Supporting a union

-- Taking medical leave covered by the Family Medical Leave Act

These are just some of the many things that you cannot be terminated for.

If you think your employer was in the wrong, it is your job to learn as much as possible about what goes into a wrongful termination claim. You need to know exactly what happened, which could mean collecting as much evidence as possible.

It is not always easy to determine if your rights have been violated. This is particularly true if you don't have any experience with this situation.

Making a wrongful termination claim may sound like a challenge, but it doesn't have to be. There are steps you can take to streamline the process and put yourself in a better position. First things first -- you want to learn more about what is considered wrongful termination. Our website is full of information on this subject.
