Defending Employers In Wrongful Termination Lawsuits
Employers have broad hiring and firing powers. Except for laws that prohibit certain forms of discrimination and retaliation, you can choose whomever you want to work for you – and when it is time to let go of an employee. Of course, a terminated employee may claim that they were fired illegally and file a wrongful termination lawsuit.
If your business has been accused of wrongful termination, you need to know your rights and obligations under state and federal law, and what to do about the claim. At Hamilton Law Firm PC, attorney Ayesha Hamilton represents employers who are facing unwarranted claims of wrongful termination.
The Gray Area In Wrongful Termination Lawsuits
Most wrongful discharge incidents are common-law matters – that is, they are not covered by specific statutes. Although there is no specific statute covering many of these claims, it’s generally recognized that it is not in the public interest to let an employer engage in or permit these practices.
This gray area doesn’t just affect employees; it can affect employers as well. While an employer may have a legitimate reason to terminate or discipline an employee, such as for poor performance or employee misconduct, an employee may allege that their termination was unfair and the result of discrimination. In such cases, employers need representation just as much as an employee does and deserve to be defended with the same tenacity.
