Representing Clients Nationwide
You’ve lost your job, but something doesn’t feel right about being let go. There was nothing wrong with your job performance, but you still find yourself out of work and not sure why. If you suspect your employer fired you for a reason that violates employment law, it may be time to talk to a lawyer. The attorneys at Chávez Law Group help clients with wrongful termination claims by investigating the circumstances leading to termination and holding employers accountable for illegal firing practices.
Discrimination Laws and Firing
Generally speaking, employers have the right to hire and fire employees as they see fit, but there are a few types of motivations that could get an employer in trouble with the law. The following reasons for termination may be in violation of current employment laws:
- Firing as retaliation for whistleblowing
- Discrimination due to race
- Discrimination due to religious belief
- Discrimination due to national origin
- Retaliation for sexual harassment claims
- Discrimination based on sexual preference
- Firing because of pregnancy or adoption
- Discrimination based on race
- Retaliation for taking time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act
A business may also be sued for damages if the reasons for firing violated the guidelines stated in official company policy literature. If you have been fired and you suspect it was one of the reasons above that prompted your boss to dismiss you, the compassionate, focused lawyers at Chávez Law Group can help you fight back against discriminatory firing.
