Atlanta, Georgia (forpressrelease) February 15, 2019 - KPPB LAW, an Atlanta labor & employment law firm
recently released a blog discussing how to determine if a firing was a wrongful termination. Understanding wrongful termination laws
can help you receive compensation for the loss of your job.
There are several types of employment terminations that would qualify as a wrongful termination. A violation of contract is often the most obvious type. If you are fired contrary to the rules of your contract, you likely have a wrongful termination case. Discrimination is also cause for wrongful termination. If you believe that you may have been fired because of your gender, age, race, or other similar reason, a case could result. Finally, employees are sometimes fired in retaliation for something, such as reporting unsafe working conditions or using sick time. However, employees should not be fired for these reasons, and a case may be possible.
If you believe that you have been wrongfully terminated, quick action is required. Document what happened when you were fired, including any reasons given for your termination. Research whether your termination is considered wrongful, and consider hiring a professional attorney to assist in this process. Then, build your case. Gather emails, computer files, handwritten notes, text messages, voicemails, and any other form of documentation that supports your wrongful termination case. Finally, choose an attorney to represent you, and rehearse how you will explain why you are no longer employed when looking for a new job. These steps can not only help you prepare a strong case, but also move forward in a positive direction as the case is pending.
