Were You Wrongly Fired Or Laid Off?
Employers don’t like workers who rock their comfortable boat. It is a common tactic to fire workers to retaliate against them for filing a discrimination claim, a retaliation claim, or filing a workers’ compensation claim after an injury on the job.
Illegal termination or creating a hostile work environment so you quit is illegal under the Civil Rights Act. In most cases, you have a right to seek compensation for lost earnings and punitive damages for wrongful termination. You may also be able to recover compensation for emotional distress and punitive damages.

Were You Fired For Taking Time Off To Fulfill An Official Responsibility?
Many small and medium-sized employers don’t like giving workers extended time off for family reasons. Others carry their distaste for personal leave to include jury duty and military assignments.
