Wrongful termination cases can be complex and difficult to prove. Generally, employees are “at will” and can be fired for any reason or no reason at all, but the reason cannot be illegal or “wrongful.” Wrongful discharge occurs when a company fires an employee in violation of an important public policy, or in violation of the terms of an employment agreement, or in retaliation when a whistleblower reports illegal conduct to an outside agency.
The attorneys at Schroeter Goldmark & Bender have worked tirelessly on behalf of their clients to safeguard the right to a discrimination- and retaliation-free workplace. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, we may be able to help you recover your lost wages and benefits as well as compensation for emotional distress caused by discriminatory treatment.
When to file
You have a limited time to protect your legal claims; failure to take action within a certain period of time (depending on the claim and where you work) may bar you from ever filing your case in court. SGB can help you determine the relevant filing deadlines for your case.
