Navigating The Legal Process: Steps To Take If You Suspect Wrongful Termination

Getting fired sucks. I know, as it happened to me last year. Wow, I was so hurt and devastated. It just didn’t make any sense. I really felt like I shouldn’t have been fired. So I decided to ask some other people to find out if I was right.

By meeting with a few lawyers, I found out it was a wrongful termination. Just this alone was so validating. I felt renewed after hearing these legal professionals confirm my situation.

Don’t just walk away, read through these steps to get some insight on what you should do.

Three Simple Steps for Handling a Wrongful Termination

After dealing with this myself, I’ve found there’s just three things you need to do if this situation happens to you. Be sure to also be kind to yourself during this time. I know how disappointing it can feel when this happens and you really enjoy your job. Just remember, you know what work quality you put out and deserve to be backed up if someone tries to say differently.

1) Gather Any Information You Have About Your Work

As soon as you can you’ll want to gather up anything about your work. Of course include things about getting fired. Anything that shows you’re a good employee also helps you. 

If there are other employees who will speak on your behalf, make sure you have their contact information. Their statements could really be useful if you decide to take legal action against your former employer.

2) Meet With as Many Lawyers as You Need

Lawyers who deal with work problems usually offer free first meetings. Take advantage of this and meet with as many of them as you need to find the right one. They will review anything you have and hear about your set of circumstances. After this they’ll give you their honest opinion. 

Ask them about their experience and how often they take on these types of cases. One other thing to check is what’s happened when they’ve had these cases go to trial. All of this information is important, and can give you a feel on how you might work with them.

3) Take Legal Action to Remedy Your Situation

After you’ve gotten the input from a couple of lawyers, you may decide taking legal action is the route you want to take. If that’s the case then you absolutely need a legal pro to help you file a lawsuit. 

Do you want to talk to your old boss? Nope, I sure didn’t! When I got a lawyer on my side they handled all the talking and all the paperwork. I honestly don’t know that I could have done that on my own.

Take Your Time to Find the Best Legal Pro

So as you can see, dealing with a wrongful termination is best done under some legal protection. I found having a lawyer on my side made me feel better. Employers need to be held responsible for their actions. Don’t walk away from what you deserve. It really gave me a boost after winning my case.
