What are the most common examples of wrongful termination?
You may have a valid claim against your employer if you believe you have been wrongfully terminated by your employer. This is because you are protected under the Civil Rights Act. Individuals between the ages of 18 and 70 who work for businesses with at least 15 employees are protected under the Civil Rights Act. Wrongful termination cases often involve discrimination due to gender, race, age, color, national origin, religion, and more. If you fall into any of these categories and you believe you are discriminated against, you may file a state and federal level claim against your employer.
What can I do if I believe I am a victim of wrongful termination?
The first step you need to take if you believe you are a victim of wrongful termination is to ask your employer for their reasoning for termination. It is important that you ask your employer to put this reasoning in writing. To gather as much evidence of the wrongful termination as possible, you should also collect pictures of discriminatory acts, emails, videos, text messages, and any other evidence that can provide that you were unfairly discriminated against and wrongfully terminated.
