Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Lisa, I am sorry that you are going through this issue. I am a licensed attorney with over a dozen years of employment law experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today, though I wish the circumstances were different.
As you know, when you are employed at will, which you likely were here, the employer can terminate you for any reason or no reason at all. The employer, however, cannot terminate you based on your age, race, gender or disability. They also cannot terminate you if it violates an express policy that they observe.
Do you feel as though this termination is rooted in discrimination in any way or that they violated their own policy in terminating you?
I look forward to hearing back from you and assisting.
I am sorry you are not satisfied. However, I need to know more information from you before I can give you a complete answer. I need to know if you think there is evidence of discrimination, or if they have violated their own policy. If there is evidence of discrimination or of violation of policy, then you have legal options to fight this horrible occurrence.
