You Deserve Better.
There are a number of reasons why you may have a wrongful termination case on your hands. For instance, if your termination was discriminatory — i.e. you were fired due to your race, ethnicity, age or gender — or resulted in a breach of contract, you should consider taking legal action.
It’s illegal under state law for an employer to retaliate against an employee due to her or his challenging a discriminatory practice. For instance, if you believe you were passed over for a promotion due to your ethnicity, your employer cannot discipline you or terminate your employment simply because you filed a complaint.
Breach of Contract
In the state of Alabama, an employment contract may be written, oral or otherwise implied. If you have a contract with your employer, regardless of its form, and your employer fires you without a justifiable rationale, you may have a legal claim for breach of contract.
Time Off & Wage Expectations
In the United States, employers are prohibited from firing and/or taking other punitive action(s) against employees who stand up for their rights under applicable wage laws. Employers are also prohibited from terminating an employee because she or he requested time off for military leave, jury duty or voting in an election.
