Wrongful dismissal happens when an employer terminates an employee without notice of termination or a fair payout in lieu of notice. Being terminated and a loss of income can turn your whole life upside down. You may feel that you have been mistreated by your employer with respect to severance. The amount of notice or pay as a terminated employee is entitled to is often in dispute. Employers will sometimes give the employee less than they are entitled and you may be entitled to more after a job loss.
If you or someone you know was fired, laid off, or terminated and you want to see what your options are with your former employer, it is important to contact us and schedule a FREE INITIAL PHONE CONSULTATION before signing a release or any other document at your employer’s request.
