Being fired can turn your entire world upside down. With that one decision, you might not be able to pay rent, buy groceries, fix your car or support your family. Considering how devastating that one decision can be, it is crucial that it be made wisely.
This doesn't mean that an employer shouldn't fire someone; it means that the employer must be sure that firing someone doesn't violate his or her employee rights. If there is reason to believe your termination was wrongful, based on the explanation below, legal action can be critical for a number of reasons.
For a termination to be wrongful, it must be one that is illegal. If you believe your firing was discriminatory, retaliatory or the result of your refusal to engage in certain prohibited activities, you may have grounds for a wrongful termination claim.
Many people in this situation wonder why they would go through the process of filing a wrongful termination claim if they've already been fired, or what good it would do if they don't even want that job back. However, the fact is that taking legal action isn't just about correcting an error made in the past.
A wrongful termination claim allows a person to seek accountability and damages that have been suffered as a result of a rights violation. You deserve to hold responsible the person or persons who fired you unjustly; further, you deserve to recover compensation for things like pain and suffering, loss of wages and the expense of losing critical benefits.
