Have you been wrongfully terminated from your job? Have you experienced discrimination, harassment, or retaliation in the workplace? If so, it may be time to take your employer to court. In this blog post, we will discuss five reasons you should consider suing for wrongful termination and how a lawyer can help.
Why Should You File A Lawsuit Against Your Employer?
There are many reasons why employees may need to file a lawsuit against their employer. Here are some of the common ones that you can refer to:
1) Wrongful Termination: If you believe that your employer terminated your employment for a reason other than lack of performance, sexual orientation or gender identity, or the wrong reasons-then it may be time to sue.
2) Wrongful termination can stem from discrimination based on age, race, and disability, as well as retaliation against making a complaint about an employee’s rights under federal law. The National Labor Relations Act also protects employees’ right to unionize.
3) Sexual Harassment: If you’ve been a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, it can be grounds for a lawsuit. This includes not just physical touching but also verbal forms of abuse such as obscene language or gestures.
4) You were terminated or misbehaved because they found out you had HIV/AIDS.
5) Your employer terminated you because there was an unplanned pregnancy before marriage.
Besides, you can also take the legal route if you didn’t do anything against company policy and got fired without notice, warning, or explanation–it’s called “termination at will,” which means employers don’t need good cause to fire employees.
If your employer has violated any of these laws, then they are liable to pay damages including back wages, front pay (a projected amount if you had continued working), reimbursement for health insurance premiums paid while unemployed; attorney fees; punitive damages in some cases; and medical expenses incurred during unemployment after a wrongful termination.
