There are many reasons why a person may be wrongfully terminated. For example, if you are sexually harassed on the job and refuse the advances of a superior, you might be fired.
That's a wrongful termination since you did nothing wrong to deserve being fired. The harassment was also against the law. You do have options if a situation like this happens.
What can you do if you're terminated due to unfair reasons?
If you are terminated wrongfully, it is a good idea to collect all the documentation regarding your termination as possible. For example, if your boss sent you a harassing email, you should print that and give it to your attorney. If you have witnesses who saw you being harassed, it's a good idea to get their contact information for your attorney, so your attorney can reach out and see if they will provide a statement.
When one worker is wrongfully terminated, there is a likelihood that others have been as well. They may be willing to step up and verify your statements as truthful if you have to go to court.
Your attorney will help you work through the process of filing a claim against your employer, so you can seek compensation for the unfair termination. If it's proven that your employer is acting illegally toward their workers, that is another issue that the court can address, which could potentially help you get your job back and stop the harassment you faced while on the job.
