The right legal approach for wrongfully terminated employees

Many Michigan residents have probably been terminated from their jobs at some point in time. Losing a job can create a difficult situation for a worker, and the person might find it difficult to support their family. It is important for the worker in that situation to determine whether the termination was fair.

If it was a case of wrongful termination, the employee may wish to file a claim in civil court and request compensation from the employer. If the termination has already occurred, the employee may be able to expect compensation from the employer. If the decision to terminate is still pending, the employee can appeal for a fair severance package.

According to the employment laws in Michigan, a termination is wrongful if there has been a violation of the state and federal employment law and labor law. If an employee has been terminated after filing a sexual harassment complaint against the employer, it also amounts to wrongful termination. Breach of the employment agreement and retaliation against whistleblowers also constitute wrongful termination.

Although many workers do not pursue claims against their employers because they fear that they will lose if they challenge the termination, many employees choose to settle for whatever compensation is offered to them. However, it is important to understand that in many cases, the employee and employer can agree on a settlement regarding wrongful termination, and the employee may be able to obtain a favorable settlement. In some cases, the court may also order the employer to pay punitive damages to the terminated employee.
