Wrongful Discharge Attorneys in Indianapolis, Indiana
What Is Wrongful Discharge or Termination?
The law protects you against wrongful discharge or termination from your job. This means that your employer cannot fire you for an illegal reason. These may include discrimination, retaliation or a breach of contract. You also cannot be terminated on the basis of your race, skin color, religion, gender and other protected classifications. If you feel your rights have been violated, call us today.
Being Fired Does Not Mean Your Right Is Violated
Unless you live in Montana, your employment is most likely considered at will. In other words, your employer can fire you at any time for nearly any reason, with or without notice. Although this may feel like your right has been violated, you do not have a legal basis to object. You must be able to prove that your termination resulted from racism, sexism, retaliation, or another illegal motivation.
Have You Been Wrongfully Fired?
When you lose a job unexpectedly, it is important to determine whether or not you have been wrongfully terminated. In addition to the reasons stated above, you should think about whether your employer has violated a contract, verbal or written, with you.
Also, are you a whistleblower and your employer is retaliating against you? Were you fired because you would not perform illegal acts? Were you fired because you asserted a legal right like requesting job-protected time off? Did your employer follow their proper termination procedures?
