Wrongful Termination Lawyer MarylandFinding a Wrongful Termination Lawyer in Maryland

If you have been wrongfully terminated by your Mayland employer, it may be in your best interest to discuss your situation with a reputable wrongful termination lawyer Maryland employees can rely on. The sooner you contact a good lawyer, the sooner they may be able to start protecting your rights and your reputation.

Wrongful Termination

If you live in Maryland or DC, the term wrongful termination may be slightly misleading.

If you have a job in either MD or DC, you most likely have an ordinary at-will agreement or contract with your employer. This means that your employer can terminate your employment relationship with you at any time and for any reason, or for no reason at all. This also means that you too can terminate your employment for any reason or no reason at all, in theory without any negative repercussions from your employer. Because of this, an employer can seemingly terminate an employee without consequence but on the contrary, there are laws that protect employees from being fired for many different reasons.

Protection Under Civil Rights Laws

Civil rights laws are a set of laws in the United States that guarantee people receive equal treatment in settings such as their employment, educational institutions, and housing. They also protect individuals by prohibiting discrimination in these and other situations.

These laws protect people in the workplace from being fired based on discrimination against them because of their age, race, color, religion, gender, ethnicity, place of origin, or a disability, to name a few of the kinds of signifiers that are protected under civil rights laws. 

If you have been fired because of some sort of discrimination, a good wrongful termination lawyer in Maryland may be able to help you get your job back and/or to get you the financial compensation that you may be entitled to. The sooner you contact a good lawyer the sooner they may be able to start helping you.

Whistleblower Protection Act

If an employee has disclosed their employer’s fraud to a government agency, they are protected from retaliation from their employer under the Whistleblower Protection Act  If you have been terminated or are being subjected to other forms of retaliatory actions, such as a demotion or harassment, because of calling out the wrongdoings of an employer, you maybe be protected under this act.

Other Reasons for Wrongful Termination Claims

Even if you work in an at-will work state, there are many different things that may cause an employee to have a valid wrongful termination claim. These include but are not limited to:

  • Breach of Implied Contract
  • Discrimination
  • Harassment
  • Violation of Public Policy e.g. Employees who refuse to work in an unsafe environment, who refuse to commit or assist in the commission of illegal activity, who need to be absent from work because of jury duty or military service, or employees who ask for overtime pay when they are supposed to but are not getting it from their employer
  • Termination as Retaliation

If you feel that you have been wrongfully terminated for any of the above reasons or one not mentioned here, it may be time to contact a good lawyer to protect your rights, your financial health, and your reputation.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
