Wrongful termination covers a wide variety of potential legal claims. There can be statutory claims that you’ve been discriminated against, or you’re being retaliated against. There can be contract rights that you have that are being violated. There could be defamation, or there could be interference with your employment relationship. There could be an invasion of privacy.
The first thing we look at is we understand the facts, and then we decide which one of those potential claims are supported by these facts, and then we agree with our client on a strategy on how to pursue that claim. Normally it involves initially trying to engage with the employer to get reasonable terms in terms of transition compensation for the employee, former employee, but when we have to, we don’t hesitate to move those claims into litigation if the employer won’t provide reasonable compensation. And we do that aggressively, thoroughly, and we’re in it for the long haul with our clients.
