Wrongful termination cases refer to legal disputes that involve the termination of an employment contract. Losing a job can be traumatic and can cause financial hardship to an employee. This is made worse when the reasons for the termination are either unclear or unlawful. For example, if an employer terminates your employment to prevent you from earning an agreed benefit (such as a sales commission), then such termination can be disputed.

Understanding Wrongful Termination Cases
Wrongful termination can take many forms and employees are sometimes not sure if they have any grounds to sue their employers for wrongful termination. One of the common ways in which employers wrongfully terminate the contracts of their employees is by firing them for reasons that are not stipulated in the employees’ contracts. In such a case, the employee has a very strong case against the employer for wrongful termination.
Another common form of wrongful termination is when an employer fires an employee to prevent them from whistleblowing on an aspect of the business that is illegal or unethical. For example, employers can sometimes dismiss employees in the hope that it will prevent them from filing sexual harassment cases or raising issues about workplace safety.
Benefits of Speaking to an Attorney
When it comes to wrongful termination, it is important to speak to an attorney who will guide you on the legal steps that you need to take. One of the reasons why employers often get away with such behavior is because employees either assume that they have no legal recourse or assume that the employer has the right to dismiss them. Talking to an experienced attorney such as Weltz Law can help you understand your legal options.
With an experienced employment lawyer by your side, you also stand a better chance of winning your wrongful termination case. This is because such cases often involve the interpretation of the employment contract which seasoned employment dispute lawyers can do easily.
