if the company had laidoff a, b, c , e, g, do you think it will be good by just suing company X and Z? What is the difference to add individual employees in the defendant list?
That’s a tough question to answer not knowing the specific details of your case. You state it was a wrongful termination, which can mean a number of things. Generally it means the employer (or perhaps this is a dual employer situation), terminated the employee in violation of the agreement of a just cause employment relationship. Most often wrongful termination claims are only brought against the employer and not its employees, even if the employees were the ones who made the termination decision(s). But it is impossible to say whether your case somehow merits suing some or all these individuals personally.
