Understand your rights after a wrongful termination

Individuals in New York change jobs with a fair amount of frequency. Some may decide that they would prefer to work for different employers or that they are ready for a complete change in their career paths. Others may find themselves out of work when their employers close their doors or when they are laid off. In some cases, workers may be singled out for dismissal and they may have no idea why their employers chose to let them go.

Although some firings and dismissals may feel wrongful, it is possible that the individuals' employers may have legitimate reasons for ending the individuals' employment. When employers fire employees for illegitimate or illegal reasons, however, the employees' dismissals may be examples of wrongful terminations.

Wrongful terminations can occur when discrimination and prejudice guide employment decisions. For example, if an employer lets go of an employee solely because of the employee's race, then that dismissal is likely wrongful. If an employer fires a worker because of their disability and there is no legitimate rationale for the termination, then the dismissal could amount to a wrongful termination.

Wrongful terminations hurt people who rely on their jobs to pay their bills, feed their families and maintain their livelihoods. State and federal laws protect individuals from workplace discrimination and no worker should be forced out of their employment because of the biases and discriminatory beliefs of their employers. Readers of this post who have been let go from their jobs in potentially wrongful terminations may benefit from having their cases reviewed by the attorneys at Mitchell, Pollack & Associates. The firm advocates for their employment law clients and seeks justice for those who have suffered losses in the employment field due to the discriminatory practices of others.
