Do I Have A Wrongful Termination Case?
Given the nature of at-will employment in Washington, wrongful termination cases are hard to prove. I have the experience in this area to know when you have a strong case, how to develop your case and how to take on your employer.
I have worked in these cases throughout Washington for more than 30 years and know what it takes to protect you from your employer. If necessary, I will fight for you if the case goes to court.
What Constitutes Wrongful Termination?
Some common examples that could result in a wrongful termination lawsuit include:
- You complain about sexual harassment and get fired.
- You complain about discrimination and get fired.
- You become disabled, and your employer fires you rather than providing accommodation.
- You take medical leave for yourself or a family member’s serious health condition, and your job is no longer available when you return.
One complaint I often hear is employees saying their boss hates them or is singling them out. This in itself is not enough to justify a lawsuit, unless you are in a protected class and they are harassing you for things like your race, gender or having a disability. If you are being discriminated or retaliated against, you need an experienced employment lawyer.
What To Expect When You Come To Me
I will let you know if you have a case. If you do, I will begin fighting for your employee rights. I start by sending a “demand letter” to your employer, outlining the facts of how your rights have been violated and include a demand for compensation.
Fighting cases of wrongful termination requires an aggressive approach, and I am not afraid to take on any employer. I have won cases against large corporations and small companies, and I will continue working on your case to get you the best possible result. You may be entitled to lost wages (past and future), emotional distress damages and attorney’s fees.
