Should I Hire a Chesterfield County Wrongful Termination Attorney?
Virginia is an “employment-at-will” state, which means that employers are lawfully able to fire any employee for any reason, or no reason at all. As you can imagine, this makes it difficult to file wrongful termination suits against them. That being said, it is illegal, under state and federal law, to fire an employee on the basis of their race, gender, or any other protected class, or for other wrongful reasons under the law, such as retaliation. If you believe that your position was wrongfully terminated, you may have a claim.
What to do if You Believe Your Position Was Wrongfully Terminated
If you believe that your position was wrongfully terminated, you should ask your employer for a written statement regarding the reason for terminating your position. If that doesn’t make sense or is pretext for an unlawful reason, you may have a wrongful termination claim, and our knowledgeable Midlothian employment attorney is here to help.
