Seek Justice After A Wrongful Termination
Employers can have many reasons for firing an employee, including incompetence, attendance issues, theft or other criminal activity, or insubordination. However, there are certain reasons that employers cannot use to fire you. If you are wrongfully terminated, what should you do?
The first thing you should do is call an employee rights attorney. My name is Rod Bridgers of the Law Office of Rod Bridgers, LLLC, and I have been representing clients across Hawaii for more than 40 years. I know your rights as an employee, and I know how to defend them.
How Can You Be Wrongfully Terminated?
It is essential to understand when it is illegal for an employer to fire you. Some of the more common examples include:
- Employment discrimination: If your employer fired you because of your race, sex, sexual orientation, gender, marital status, religion, nation of origin or pregnancy, they discriminated against you.
- Refusal to violate the law: Your employer cannot ask you to perform illegal activities and fire you if you refuse to engage in them.
- Retaliation (whistleblowing activities): An employer cannot legally retaliate against an employee who has reported a workplace violation.
If you believe you were fired because of these, breach of employment contract or other illegal circumstances, contact my office immediately. As a seasoned employment lawyer, I will thoroughly gather key evidence to support your wrongful termination claim. Hold the liable party accountable for their actions.
