What Are Your Employment Rights?
Owens, McCrea & Linscott, PLLC, has a reputation for providing excellent representation to employees who have been wrongfully terminated, discriminated against, subjected to harassment or subjected to retaliation.
Not all terminations are unlawful. A termination may be unfair but legal. Determining whether a legal claim exists requires an analysis of many factors based on your situation. Some examples of wrongful termination include termination in violation of public policy, without due process of the law, in violation of a contract or retaliatory termination.
