Highly Skilled Indiana Wrongful Discharge Attorney
Indiana is what is known as an employment-at-will state. This means that, in general, you can legally be fired at any time, for any reason, unless you are employed by the government or you have a contract with your employer. However, that does not mean that you do not have any rights to continued employment; there are exceptions to this general rule.
- First, you cannot be terminated for exercising a statutory right, such as filing for workers' compensation benefits. An experienced employment lawyer such as the ones at Employment Law Office of John H. Haskin & Associates, LLC, will work to either get money damages for you or get you reinstated.
- The second exception is that you cannot be fired for refusing to do something illegal. This is called retaliatory discharge, and it is not allowed in Indiana. If your employer asked you to doctor the books, fire someone for an illegal reason, or file a fraudulent insurance claim or other false claim and you refuse, your employer cannot fire you for refusing to violate the law.
Indianapolis Attorney — Were You Wrongfully Dismissed Or Fired?
In addition to these main exceptions, there are various state and federal laws that protect you from being fired for certain reasons, such as reporting illegal activity at the company to the proper authorities, or complaining about sexual harassment. There are also certain situations where an employee or former employee may have a wrongful discharge claim based upon a breach of a promise or implied contract made at the time of hiring. This is known as a Romac claim.
If you feel you were unfairly or illegally fired, call the Indiana wrongful discharge attorneys at Employment Law Office of John H. Haskin & Associates, LLC.
