Wrongful Termination Archives

Former hospital executive files lawsuit alleging retaliation

Certain jobs in Michigan can be complicated when the employee's mandate is to research into various issues that might be viewed as controversial and reporting on it honestly. However, a person's job duties are what they are and if they make a decision to follow through on them as instructed, it is illegal for the employers to take part in any form of retaliation. Unfortunately, this happens all too frequently. When this level of employment law violation occurs, the person who was affected by it must be aware that there is the opportunity to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for the wrong that was done.

Particularly with high-profile jobs in Michigan, a termination shortly after a person's hiring is certain to draw attention. Often, these firings have to do with differences of opinion as to how an employee should conduct him or herself and what the employee believed was within the parameters of the job. If the employee ends up losing his or her job, disagreement over the cause of the termination can lead to a wrongful termination lawsuit to determine whether or not there was a violation of employment law. If successful on such a claim, a former employee may garner compensation for his or her damages, as one individual is now trying to accomplish.

Many times, victims will ignore the issue in fear of retaliation and in the hopes that it will simply go away.
