Recognizing Signs Of Wrongful Termination
Wrongful termination can take many forms, and it’s essential to be aware of the signs that you may have been wrongfully terminated. One common form is discrimination, where you were fired due to your race, age, gender, religion, national origin, disability or other protected characteristics. Another instance could be retaliation, where termination occurs after reporting workplace misconduct such as harassment, safety violations or illegal activities. Whistleblowing is also a concern, where job loss follows reporting your employer’s illegal activities or unethical behavior. Wrongful termination can also involve a breach of contract when the conditions for termination specified in your employment contract are not followed. Additionally, if your work environment became so hostile or intolerable that you had no choice but to resign, it may be considered wrongful termination. Lastly, if your termination violated public policy, such as firing you for taking family or medical leave, it could be wrongful.
What To Do If You Believe You Were Wrongfully Terminated
If you suspect you’ve been wrongfully terminated, taking certain steps can be crucial. Documenting everything is the first step, including keeping records of incidents leading to your termination, including emails, texts and conversations with colleagues or supervisors. Consulting an attorney is equally important.
