firing. You may believe that you were let go for reasons that you feel are justified, such as your bad performance, or for insubordination, or other reasons that you feel are illegitimate such as being the victim of sexual harassment.

You should also talk with your attorney about firing a co-worker who repeatedly makes sexual advances toward you or who remains on the job after you complain about his conduct.
Laws regarding Equal Employment Opportunity. An employment attorney will know the details of this federal law that protects everyone. The act guarantees you the right to be treated equally at all times in the workplace, and prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, gender, national origin, age, religion, or disability. There are numerous statues and statutes that protect employees from sexual harassment. In addition, there are numerous laws regarding equal opportunity, which prohibit employers from treating their employees unfairly because of things like race, national origin, age, gender, or religion. If you have been discriminated against, you may want to speak with an employment attorney as soon as possible.
Firing Based On A False Allegation. Federal law states that an employee can be fired for false statements made to a supervisor or another employee, even if it is not true. In some cases, a disgruntled employee may make a number of claims against a company that cannot be entirely substantiated by the company’s own records. If your employer has determined that you have made a number of false statements, they must be able to prove them, and if they are unable to do so, they may find themselves facing a lawsuit from you and your legal representatives.
There are other special issues in employment laws, including discrimination due to disability, and retaliation. If you feel that you have been unfairly accused of, or found guilty of, any wrongdoing, an employment attorney can help you fight back. The experienced representation from a lawyer can ensure that you receive the fair treatment in terms of your employment issues.
