Have You Been Fired Unjustly?
Wrongful termination is one of the most frequently heard grounds for litigation over employee rights, and if you have been fired with no reasonable basis, you should know that you have recourse under law. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions routinely investigate claims made by individuals who complain that their employer has terminated employment as an act of discrimination or as retaliation for statutorily protected activity. Title VII and related laws protect employees against threats of losing their jobs without grounds, and if you have been a victim of this abuse you should speak with an employment law attorney to see whether you have a claim.
If your case can be proven in court, you may be awarded monetary compensation to cover your lost wages, both for the time since your termination and into the future in consideration of the time it may take you to find a new job. You can also seek punitive damages for the stress and upset you suffered, as well as to censure the employer and deter others from taking similar actions. Wrongful termination lawsuits are commonly based on a complaint made by the employee over discrimination, sexual harassment or wage and hour disputes, but they are possible under any circumstances where the employer violated legal guidelines for firing.
