Find a New Castle Wrongful Termination Attorney in your area

Were You Wrongly Terminated?

An employee who is fired from a job illegally is said to be wrongfully terminated and may have a valid cause of action to file a lawsuit. Determining if the employee was legally or illegally terminated depends on the situation and the circumstances involved.

Do You Have a Wrongful Employment Case?

Most employers are careful to take steps to avoid wrongful termination, so it is in your best interest to immediately consult with a New Castle attorney experienced in employment law. The lawyer can determine if your situation warrants a wrongful termination lawsuit and, if so, how best to proceed.

Can You Get Your Job Back in a Wrongful Termination Lawsuit?

States with public policy exceptions, implied contract exceptions, and “implied-in-law” (or good faith) contracts are more likely to side with fired employees in wrongful termination suits than other states. Still, there is no guarantee that you will win. Financial compensation is the most frequent form of restitution in successful wrongful termination cases. However, the court may also impose a reinstatement order requiring your former employer to bring you back on board — provided you agree to return to work. Returning to your job is a possibility if your relationship with your employer remains in relatively good standing despite the wrongful termination suit.

How Long Does a Wrongful Termination Lawsuit Take?

While most law firms will remind potential clients that the time required to resolve legal suits can be unpredictable, wrongful termination lawsuits are often resolved in less than three years, with many cases taking less than a year. The EEOC imposes a filing deadline of 180 days from the last date of alleged discrimination for those who qualify. Therefore, it is important that individuals who believe they have been wrongfully terminated take action as soon as possible. The LawInfo directory can help you find Wrongful Termination lawyers near you in New Castle.

Who Do You Report Wrongful Termination To In Delaware?

You can file a wrongful termination claim with the federal government via the Department of Labor or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). You can also file a claim with the Delaware employment agency. Wrongful termination suits alleging that an employer fired an employee due to discrimination based on sex, gender, or race are generally covered under federal law, so you have protection in these situations, even if your state government follows at-will employment policies.

How Do You Prove Wrongful Termination?

Proving a wrongful termination case can be difficult, particularly in states with “at-will” employment policies, which allow an employer to fire an employee at any time, for any reason, and allow an employee to quit or leave the job at any time. Wrongful termination of an employee is an exception to at-will policies.

Evidence is the most important element in proving a wrongful termination case. You will need to collect all relevant employment documents and correspondence, as well as your contract, if one exists. This evidence can help determine, with legal counsel’s help if possible, if any laws were broken, especially regarding discrimination or retaliation.

What Is Wrongful Termination?

Wrongful termination occurs when an employer fires an employee for reasons outside of your existing contract or reason that breaks federal, state, or local laws. An employee of a company who has been laid off or fired for illegal reasons may have a case to file a wrongful termination lawsuit against their employer.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

What to Expect from an Initial Consultation

  • Seek to determine whether the attorney can represent you. There is no one-size-fits-all legal solution and it may turn out your needs are better served by an attorney in a different specialization.
  • It’s important to find a legal ally who is both competent in the law and someone you can trust to protect your interests.
  • Discuss how the practice’s billing works and discuss possible additional charges or fees that may arise during or after the resolution of your case.

An attorney consultation should provide you with enough information so that you can make an informed decision on whether to proceed with legal help.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney’s hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For “routine” legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.

Common legal terms explained

Plaintiff – a person or party who brings a lawsuit against another person(s) or party/parties in a court of law. Private persons or parties can only file suit in civil court.

Judgment – A decision of the court. Also known as a decree or order. Judgments handed down by the court are usually binding on the parties before the court.
