There are many different reasons that employers wrongfully terminate employees. If this has happened to you, it is important that you protect your financial rights as well as to ensure that your reputation is not tarnished because of it. 

If you’ve been the victim of a wrongful termination, a good lawyer may be able to help to protect your rights and your reputation.

Wrongful Termination

A wrongful termination is an illegal firing. Different states have different laws that are specific to their state’s policies and legal procedures but oftentimes in wrongful termination cases, the firing is illegal because it violates a specific state or federal law.

An example of this is when Title VII of the Civil Rights Act is violated by firing an employee because of the color of their skin, or because of their ethnicity, country of origin, race, religion, or gender, is illegal. 

Another example of a wrongful termination that may warrant you filing a wrongful termination claim with the help of a good lawyer is if you complained about an employer’s unlawful or discriminatory conduct and they fired you.

If you are suffering because of a wrongful termination for any reason, a good lawyer with an office in Washington, DC may be able to help you.

Wrongful Discharge Laws

While the specifics of some employee contracts may differ, as a general rule, employees are considered to be employed “at will” and can be fired or otherwise terminated for any reason. This means that an employee can also be terminated for no reason in particular and without any explanation. But many jurisdictions, including Washington, DC, have adopted public policy exceptions.

Public policy exceptions protect employees who call attention to unsafe practices in the workplace, unethical practices and/or treatment while at work, and illegal or criminal activities that they are asked to participate in and/or that they have knowledge of. When exceptions such as these are made to protect an employee, they are often referred to as wrongful discharge laws.

When someone is fired illegally, a wrongful termination lawyer may be able to help you to bring a claim of wrongful discharge against your employer. This may help you to get your job back and/or to get you compensation for the expenses and hardships that resulted from your wrongful termination.

If an employer has caused you and your family to suffer because of wrongfully firing you, a good lawyer may be able to help you.

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.
