Most employees are considered to be "at-will" employees. This means that you can be fired for any number of reasons. However, there are circumstances when you may be fired for improper reasons. At the Law Firm of Daniela Labinoti, P.C., our El Paso wrongful termination lawyer stands up for the rights of illegally fired workers. We are not afraid to hold employers accountable for their actions through aggressive litigation.
What You Cannot Be Fired For
You are protected under various laws in regard to employment. Our experienced El Paso and Las Cruces employment lawyer can help you with various claims for wrongful discharge. Your employer cannot fire and cannot retaliate against you:
- Because you filed a claim for employment discrimination
- Because you filed a claim for workers' compensation
- Because you have complained about sexual harassment
- Because you have acted as a whistleblower concerning your employer's practices
- Because you are pregnant or need time off under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Because you are backing up a co-worker's claim of discrimination or harassment
If you have been fired or have been retaliated against for any of the above actions, you can likely bring a legal action against your employer. We are dedicated to defending the rights of workers and will fight to make sure that your employer follows the law.
Diligent Representation You Can Rely On
All too often, these types of cases can come down to your word versus the word of your employer. You need a thorough attorney who is skilled and knowledgeable regarding employment law. We will fight tirelessly to uncover the true motivation for why you were let go. We will mount an extensive investigation into your circumstances so we can build the strongest claim possible to help make sure that justice is served.
