Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hi, thanks for submitting your question today. My name is***** have over 13 years of legal and consulting experience in this area. I’m happy to assist you with your question today. I'm sorry to hear about your job loss.I'll need to ask you some preliminary questions before I can give you an answer to your question. Are you in a union or do you otherwise have a contract for "just cause" (as opposed to “at will" employment which is the default employment condition)? Have you thoroughly reviewed the employee handbook for language that states the handbook does not create a contract and/or management has or retains the right to change policies at will or employment remains at all times "at will"? Do you think the manager who terminated you had an ulterior motive in terminating you, perhaps your age, race, gender, disability or religious beliefs?
