Defense for Wrongful Termination

Wrongful termination cases are among the employment and labor cases filed in court that are heavily litigated. Due to mostly non-economic factors affecting the whole scenario of wrongful termination, the outcome as well as awards for damages is highly anticipated.

Aside from those who have been allegedly wrongfully discharged, whistle blower retaliation and other publicly wrongful discharge claims are also increasing in number. These lawsuits represent huge financial exposures to employers both in terms of the cost of defense and the amount of verdicts.

Wrongful termination can take many forms. These include wrongful discharge in violation of public policy, retaliation, discrimination due to sex, age, race and disability, negligent hiring, infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy through drug testing, fraud, false imprisonment among others.

You need lawyers to determine on the outset whether the wrongful termination case filed against you is baseless or that the complainant had no sufficient evidence to suppose he was terminated for any other reason other than stated in his termination letter.

Don’t gamble on your company’s future, fight dishonest former employees from taking you down with baseless wrongful employment suits, get legal help now and fast.
