Hello and welcome,

Is your question about the timeline for filing a lawsuit for wrongful termination or filing a grievance with the employer/union?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
wrongful termination involving the employer and Teamsters union.
Expert:  Tina replied 6 years ago.
I see.

What is the basis for the claim of wrongful termination? A violation of anti-discrimination statutes or something else?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

He spent his own money to go to rehab while going through divorce. He never had a ticket or problem driving. the rehab did not give him any followup, so ended up back in rehab, (I dont know if he paid for it again or if the company did) still with no citations by the company or driving.


Time is passing and he needs to get on the bandwagon. How soon after the final hearing does he have to file and what are the timelines once he has filed.

Expert:  Tina replied 6 years ago.
I see.

If he is alleging the union or employer is breaching a written contract with him, then the statute of limitations would normally be 4 years from the date of the breach.

Some wrongful termination claims have a statute of limitations as short as 2 years though, so it is best to file suit promptly in the event a court determines a different statute of limitations applies.
