Providing Pretermination Counseling To Employers
Even though terminating an employee for misconduct or poor performance may be perfectly legal, an employee may not see things that way. They may feel like their termination was based on their age, sexual orientation, race or disability. They may also see it as a form of retaliation or another unlawful reason.
Employees who feel they have been wronged by their employer or are experiencing an injustice may seek help from a lawyer in order to file a civil claim against their employer. These claims can lead to a settlement or lengthy litigation that can be incredibly damaging to an employer’s reputation.
No one should have to face the possibility of litigation alone. Attorney Ayesha Hamilton is a skilled negotiator and litigator. Call 800-742-1490 to discuss your case with her.
