If you fear you have been wrongfully terminated, ask yourself these questions to determine if you have a valid wrongful termination claim:
- Are you in possession of any circumstantial or direct evidence that you were discriminated against?
- When you got fired, did other employees of the same gender, race, etc. get laid off as well?
- Do you experience that employees of similar age, race or gender all are being treated differently by your employer?
- Have you experienced specific actions that suggest favoritism or bias towards only a group of employees?
- Did you experience insulting or offensive comments from an employer?
- Did your employer ever represent him/herself sexually to you in an unwelcome manner?
- Prior to your termination, were any complaint or reports towards your company filed?
- If complaints or reports were filed, did you experience any negative backlash from your employer?
- In your written employment contract, are there listed specific reasons why your employer could fire you?
- Were any verbal promises made regarding the security of your job?
Did you answer “yes” to any of these? Then you might have a case against your employer. Contact our wrongful termination lawyer in Houston today to discuss your case!
