Wrongful termination, also known as wrongful dismissal, describes a situation where you believe that you have been dismissed from your job without due cause, or against the terms of your contract. Technically, at Van Etten Sipprelle LLP a lawyer will take on your case if the dismissal breaches the conditions specified in your contract of employment, or breaches employment law. A formal written contact of employment is not always necessary as a precondition for disputing a termination.
What are the circumstances of wrongful termination that lawyers would want to see? Examples would be dismissal based on your age, sex, or race, dismissal based on a false accusation of theft or similar, or dismissal without having gone through a due warning process as specified in a contract, usually involving a series of verbal or written warnings. You cannot be dismissed either for refusing to do something illegal, for whistle-blowing on your employer, or for taking family or medical leave.
Your goal in disputing your employment termination will be either to receive your job back, or to be awarded compensation of some sort. A lawyer will often be needed, due to the complexity of employment law and because of the tight timeframe within which documents often have to be presented.
