Find a Hilliard 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 Hilliard 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 Hilliard.

Who Do You Report Wrongful Termination To In Ohio?

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 Ohio 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.

Best Time to Seek Legal Help

No matter what your legal issue may be, it is always best to seek legal help early in the process. An attorney can help secure what is likely to be the best possible outcome for your situation and avoid both unnecessary complications or errors.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
