Has Your Job Been Wrongfully Terminated? Here is What You Should Know.

There is nothing more frustrating and insulting than being wrongfully terminated from your job, especially if you are someone who, day in and day out, works as hard as you can in your position at your place of employment. Unfortunately, this is something that happens far more often than any of us would like to admit, and if you believe that this has happened to you, our experienced Georgia employment rights attorney may be able to help. Read on and speak with our firm today to learn more about wrongful terminations and what we can do for you.

What are some of the most frequent examples of wrongful terminations?

While you should keep in mind that Georgia law generally favors the employer when it comes to certain discrepancies, employees are still protected under various rights, and in certain cases where they believe they have been wrongfully terminated, they may have a valid claim against their employer under the rights provided to them under the Civil Rights Act. The Civil Rights Act means that all those between the age of 18 and 70 who work for businesses with at least 15 employees. If you believe you are discriminated against and you fall into the aforementioned categories, you may file a state and federal level claim against your employer. Most wrongful termination cases we see involve discrimination regarding gender, color, race, age, national origin, religion, and more. We can also file claims for employees that believe they are the victim of employer retaliation for reporting discrimination or whistleblowing.

Can I sue if I believe I was wrongfully terminated?

Yes. First, you must ask your employer for his or her reasoning for terminating you. He or she should put that reasoning in writing. If that answer is unreasonable, our Georgia employment rights attorney is here to help. Bear in mind that to have the best case against your former employer, you should provide us with as much evidence as possible. This can include pictures of discriminatory acts, text messages, emails, videos, and any other evidence you may have that proves that you were unfairly discriminate against and wrongfully terminated. Our firm is always here to help–all you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call today.
