Wrongful Termination

Wrongful Termination and Employment Law Attorneys

Wrongful termination is an action brought against an employer for any illegal firing of an employee. In most cases, an employee is in an "at-will" employment arrangement where an employer can fire the employee at any time, for any reason. However, the employer cannot fire the employee for any illegal reasons, including for example: retaliation for reporting wrongdoing, discrimination, or whistleblowing.

If you believe that you were wrongfully terminated from a position, we can protect your rights against an employer. At Martin D. Haverly, Attorney at Law, we are dedicated to achieving positive results for our clients' complex and individual cases.

Wrongful termination is illegal. Protect your rights. Call (302) 529-0121 today or contact us by e-mail for a consultation.

Assessing Your Wrongful Termination Claim

At the outset of your case, we will assess your interests, rights, and potential outcomes in pursuing a claim. Typically, we will conduct a cost-benefit analysis, determining whether the expense and resources put forth are worth the potential results in your case. As your attorney, we will always give you an honest assessment, considering potential risks and costs of litigation. If we choose to proceed with your claim, you can trust we will remain an aggressive advocate, dedicated to the outcome of your case, including maximizing your monetary recovery.

We are experienced in wrongful termination cases involving:

  • Discrimination
  • Age
  • Disability and illness
  • Race
  • Breach of employment contract
  • Sex discrimination
  • Retaliation and whistleblowing

Illness, Disability and Age Discrimination

Cases involving disability or illness are often complex. Proving that you were unfairly passed over for a promotion or suffered discrimination may be more difficult if you suffer from an illness that makes it difficult to perform your work duties. We are experienced in handling claims involving disabled or ill individuals or individuals who have suffered discrimination because of age. These cases involve a more in-depth investigation of facts, corporate policies and actions, and state and federal laws. We know how to assess your case and pursue your rights in the event of illness, disability or age discrimination that results in wrongful termination.
