Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am afraid I do not understand what further information you would like from us? Please explain, since you were told by the firms in AL that there was no legal case (the case has to be brought in AL, since that is where you are employed and MD law quite frankly is not really different regarding at will employment).
Thank you for your reply.If you were terminated solely based on your age/race/sex/disability/national origin, then you would first have to file a complaint with the EEOC anyhow. So you can do that before finding an attorney. If you were not terminated for one of those reasons, then employment in AL and MD is considered to be at will and the employer can terminate you for no reason at all or for any reason and they do not have to rehire you either. The only reason they cannot terminate you for is as I said above, age/race/sex/disability/national origin, but for any other reason they can exclude you from employment or reemployment I am afraid.
You can seek an attorney in MD, but unless you have more evidence of one of those above reasons being the only reason for the termination, you would not have a basis for a legal claim.
