Here To Help If You Have Been Wrongfully Terminated
In New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, most employment relationships fall into a category called “at-will” employment. Simply put, at-will means there is no contract involved; the employee is free to quit at any time and the employer can fire an employee at any time and for any reason, as long as the reason is lawful.
Wrongful termination occurs when an employee is dismissed for an unlawful reason, such as complaining about sexual harassment. At Mitchell Pollack & Associates PLLC, our attorneys have decades of experience helping employees who were dismissed for unlawful reasons. We have vast experience counseling businesses in employment issues, and we know what is and is not permissible when it comes to termination.
If you feel you were a victim of wrongful termination, call our White Plains lawyers at 914-610-3418 to schedule a meeting.
Recognizing The Signs Of Wrongful Termination
Our attorneys are familiar with the state and federal laws that protect employees from unlawful termination. Under those laws, an employer cannot fire an employee:
- On account of his or her race, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity, religion, age or disability
- Because he or she files a workers’ compensation claim
- Because he or she files a sexual harassment complaint
- Because he or she reports illegal conduct (blows the whistle)
- Because he or she takes time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
