Fight Back From Wrongful Termination
Not all discharges are considered wrongful under the law. Most employment is at will, which means the employee can leave the employer at any time, and the employer can terminate the employee at any time. However, your discharge may be considered wrongful if:
- You have a written employment or union contract and this contract states that you can only be discharged for a good reason.
- You are a long-term employee who has an implied employment contract.
- You were fired because of age, race, national origin, disability, marital or family status, pregnancy, religion, sex, or sexual orientation.
- You were fired in retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim.
- You were fired in retaliation for filing a claim against your employer for sexual harassment, discrimination, wage and hour law violation, or another employer violation.
- You were fired in retaliation for being a whistleblower.

HR Won’t Help Me – What Should I Do?
If you think you may be a victim of wrongful termination, or if you think your job is threatened, it is wise to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Our wrongful discharge attorneys can help you identify records and documents you need to establish your case. Collecting emails, copies of performance reviews, HR policies and handbooks, and other information, will be important in establishing your employer’s liability during negotiations or at trial. Once you’re fired or removed from a job, it becomes more difficult to access materials and evidence that expose your employer’s illegal actions.
A Strong Tradition Of Working With Labor Unions
Having helped working people over the course of many years, we’re proud of the opportunities we had to work with labor unions, including the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), Service Employees International Union (SEIU), United Auto Workers (UAW), United Steel Workers of America (USWA), United Postal Workers of America (UPWA), International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Office & Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU), American Federation of Teachers (AFT), Utility Workers, and Laborers International Union of North America (LIUNA).
We represent unions before the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), as well as state labor boards in a wide range of employment disputes, including wrongful discharge. We also represent unions in labor arbitrations.
