It is very traumatic to be terminated from an employment by unlawful reason. Employment contracts are made by some employers on an ‘at will’ basis. This means that the employee can be terminated at any time without any reason. But this should not be done on the basis of discrimination against race, religion, nationality, disability, sex and age. Sometimes, employees are terminated much before the expiry of contract periods. When some employees file a case against the employer for some legal reason that is acknowledged publicly, then employers try to terminate them. When a person is terminated for these reasons, then the employee may file a wrongful termination suit against the employer.
There are many federal laws enacted in the jurisdictions in the United States to avoid age, race, gender, or disability discrimination. When a person feels that he or she is terminated because of particular discrimination, then an attorney can be consulted. It is better to seek the advices and services from the attorney. The lawyer represents the victim in a court or a jury.
The attorney deals with the employer in order to find the rights and reputation of the victim in the workplace. The lawyer suggests the victim for filing a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). If necessary a lawsuit is filed against the employer in assistance with the attorney in state or federal court on the basis of the case specifications. Many significant awards can be provided to the victim, if it is proved that the termination is unlawful. So when you feel that you are terminated wrongfully, then immediately hire an attorney for filing a wrongful termination suit.
