Wrongful and Retaliatory Discharge

As an employee, you have rights and under federal and state laws, it is illegal for an employer to discharge an employee in response to that employee exercising his or her rights.

Examples of wrongful and retaliatory discharge include discharging someone for:

  • Asserting their workers’ compensation rights
  • Reporting discrimination
  • Taking maternity leave
  • Taking medical leave
  • Engaging in whistleblowing

If you were terminated from your job and you believe it was done in violation of the law, it is important that you speak with one of our experienced employment law lawyers. We will examine your case and determine whether you have a valid wrongful discharge suit. If our legal counsel shows you do have a valid suit, we will take the proper legal action to seek the justice you deserve. At Mathis, Marifian & Richter, Ltd., we are dedicated to protecting your rights as an employee.
