Waldorf, Maryland Employment Wrongful Termination Law Firm
Wrongful Termination Lawyer with Almost 15 Years of Experience
If you have been fired from your job for an illegal reason, your rights have been violated. The law provides you with legal remedies. Nathaniel David Johnson, Employment Law Litigator, I help victims of wrongful termination to enforce those rights and recover money damages, or perhaps even be reinstated. I can fight for you against any employer, from a local store owner, to the federal government.
Generally, an employer can fire you at any time, for almost any reason or for no reason. But there are some reasons for which you may not be fired.
If you were fired for an illegal reason, then you have been a victim of wrongful termination. These reasons include:
Wrongful termination can also result where people are fired for the following reasons:
- Whistle blowing
- Pursuing a sexual harassment claim
- Asserting your rights under the FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act)
- Filing a workers' compensation claim
Finally, individual employment situations may give rise to a claim for wrongful termination if your dismissal was in violation of:
- An employee handbook
- A contract of employment
- A company's personnel policy
- Any federal, state or local employment law that protects your right to work
Remember, just because you have been fired does not mean you have a claim against your employer. You may, of course, be fired if your employer does not like your work performance, or if you are habitually late. You may even be fired for an irrational or silly reason. So long as your employer does not fire you for an illegal reason, you will not have a claim for wrongful termination.
However, if your firing does come under one of the circumstances listed above, you may be able to recover damages, obtain reinstatement, or both.
I have almost 15 years of experience as an employment law litigator. Put that experience to work for you.
