I Was Illegally Fired, Can I Sue?
If you were truly wrongfully terminated from your job, you have powerful state and federal laws protecting your rights. It’s possible that you can sue if you were fired.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to:
- Back wages
- Lost income
- Compensation for lower wages if your new job pays less than the one you were fired from
- Punitive damages — these are relatively rare and intended to punish the wrongdoer for egregious acts
- Attorneys’ fees
- Compensation for relocation and other costs resulting from your termination
Every case is different. Our attorneys can examine the factors that led to your termination to determine what, if any, damages you are entitled to receive. We can also help you understand if you were wrongfully fired and have a case.
