Fighting Wrongful Termination In New York City
Have you been terminated from your job? Do you feel your termination was wrongful? Generally, an employer can fire an employee for almost any reason. At the Law Office of Sandra D. Parker in New York City, we provide aggressive representation in meritorious wrongful termination cases. We leave no stone unturned in our representation of wronged employees.
A wrongful termination takes place when the termination was:
- Discriminatory: Employers cannot fire employees because of their gender, sex, race, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, age or disability.
- Retaliatory: Employers cannot fire employees for engaging in a protected activity such as taking leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act or reporting sexual harassment or other illegal activity.
- In violation of an employment contract: Employees who have employment contracts can be fired only for violation of that contract.
- Constructive firing: Employers cannot make the workplace so unbearable that an employee is forced to leave his or her job.
