Understanding your rights if you're terminated from work

Being fired from work can feel like a swift punch in the gut. Not only can your personal ego feel damaged with beliefs that you're inadequate, unwanted or just not good enough for the job, but you must also face the reality with your family and friends. In addition, whatever income you had been receiving is now gone.

It's important to understand your rights if you've recently been fired from work. If you do not have a contract, you are working "at will" with your employer. This means that they may let you go without a valid reason. This may or may not be related to your production or abilities. Sometimes it is just in the best interest of the company to let you go.

Despite that, if you are fired for illegal reasons, such as retaliation, discrimination or if the firing contradicts your oral or written contract with your employer, your rights may have been violated. You may not be fired on the grounds of your sex, national origin, race, disability, age, religion and in some states, your sexual orientation.

With over 25 years of experience, our team at Mitchell Pollack & Associates has a wealth of knowledge and success in handling employee's rights claims. We are capable and experienced in handling cases at both the state and federal court levels. Our attorneys are also skillful at considering alternative solutions for disputes such as arbitration or mediation. To learn more, check out our wrongful termination website. This could provide general information and help you assess any issues or questions you may have.
