Wrongful Termination Lawyers in Massachusetts
Massachusetts is an “at-will” state. This simply means that an employer can terminate someone “at-will” and also an employee is free to quit a job “at-will’. However, despite that fact, there are laws and regulations that protect workers from being wrongfully terminated. While wrongful termination can be difficult to prove, when it has occurred, having a skilled and experienced Massachusetts wrongful termination attorney in your corner can make all the difference in the world. There may be times when a wrongful termination case comes down to one person’s word against another. Or, you may have a gut feeling about why you were terminated but your employer cites another reason, making your case more difficult to prove. If you feel you have been the victim of wrongful termination, George C. Malonis may be able to help cut through the reasons given or help prove that your rights have been violated.
Signs of Being Wrongfully Terminated
There are several scenarios when wrongful termination may be proven and the guilty party can be held accountable. If you were let go from a position and you feel discrimination was the reason, wrongful termination may be proven. Also, if you were harassed or made to feel humiliated and violated, and then let go from your job after voicing an objection or concerns, wrongful termination may be found. There are also times where a company or business will dismiss an employee as they near retirement age or are on the verge of collecting some other benefits. This, too, is cause for a wrongful termination suit. When someone speaks out about unsafe, illegal, or unfair working conditions and then loses their position, wrongful termination may be proven. If someone is terminated and it violates a contract or written agreement between the employer and employee, that also can be a case for wrongful termination in Massachusetts. If any of these scenarios or another seemingly unfair or unjust cause is at the root of your termination, the law firm of George C. Malonis may be able to get justice for you.
