Wrongful Termination or Wrongful Dismissal or Wrongful Firing or Wrongful Discharge are all synonymous terms, which collectively refer to the act of an employer breaching the employee's employment contract. An employment contract can sometimes be “de facto,” which means it is presumed by virtue of the employment relationship. Thus it does not need to always be a formal written contract.
If you are unaware of your rights as an employee, you may not be able to claim what is rightfully yours. As a worker you have protection against unlawful termination and discrimination. If you feel that you are treated unfairly at your workplace or are fired wrongfully, it is necessary to consult a competent, credible and compassionate employment lawyer. Your Chosen Attorney will look into your case in order to ensure that your legal rights are defended and justice is obtained.
Here are just a few problems you may face at work and how a good employment lawyer can help you deal with it:
Discrimination can come in many forms, from difference in pay among different employees doing the same job to unfair treatments or even some forms of verbal abuse. Any discrimination based on race, national origin, gender, age or disability can be construed as wrongful. As you might expect, employers are not allowed to discriminate based on these criteria and if you find yourself to be a victim of discrimination, it is important to consult a good employment lawyer. A competent and experienced employment lawyer can build a proper case in order to protect you from being discriminated or obtain a just compensation for your losses due to past and present discriminations.
• Sexual harassment
This is one of the most uncomfortable offences at the work place, which is not only a civil wrong, it is also a crime. Unfortunately, many victims do not report sexual harassments for many reasons, such as fear of retribution and retaliation. It is absolutely essential that you consult an experienced employment lawyer and discuss your case. Remember your communications regarding your case with your lawyer in private are protected by Attorney-Client Privilege, even if you do not hire the lawyer or even fire the lawyer later.
Sexual harassment can take various forms, such as unwanted sexual comments, dirty jokes, exposure to pornography and unsolicited sexual advances. Such offences are treated quite seriously under the law and a good employment lawyer can help you deal with such stressful situations prudently.
