Wrongfully terminated? Get the help you need to fight back

You were fired from your job, and you're sure it was not for legal reasons. They always commented on unusual parts of your life and when you were asked, you didn't hold back. They seemed interested in your sexuality the most, which should have been off-limits. It's your belief that you were terminated when your boss found out that you were gay.

If you are terminated in a situation like this, it's important to take a few steps. To start with, you'll want to note the date and write down any instances that could be used to explain why this was a wrongful termination and the reason that you believe your superior used your sexual preferences against you. These are important dates and documents to give to your attorney.

After this, you'll want to collect your final paycheck and file for unemployment. Normally, you can file for unemployment compensation so long as the termination was not a result of misconduct that was repeated and deliberate.

While you can move on and start looking for another job, it's also smart to speak with your attorney about the termination and if it was legal. If it sounds like the termination was a violation of the Equal Employment Opportunity Act, then your attorney can help you file a claim against your employer. If you have good supporting evidence and have witnesses that can agree that you were treated unfairly, then you may have a solid case for compensation for a wrongful termination. Our website has more information on wrongful terminations and how you can file a claim.
