Have you been wrongfully terminated from your job?
Did your boss single you out for conduct that all of your peers engage in?
Did your employer simply make up things that weren’t true about your performance in order to terminate you?
Madia Law Helps Employees Who Have Been Wrongfully Terminated
If you answered “yes” to any one of the above questions, Madia Law may be able to help. We represent employees across the States of Minnesota and Wisconsin in wrongful termination cases. We’ve been honored to take on – and beat – some of the largest employers in the country that broke the law.
Here are some things you should know. First, Minnesota is an “at will” employment state, which means that employers can terminate their employees for many reasons – but not illegal reasons. Unlawful reasons for termination include discrimination and retaliation. Sometimes, employers will say that their reason for termination is performance based, but in reality, they are simply trying to avoid stating their real reason for termination – discrimination or retaliation.
We’ve handled many cases where employers first asserted that they terminated employees for performance, but once we got started in the case, it became very clear that the real reason for termination was either discrimination or retaliation and performance was just a pretext. Discrimination based on race, gender, age, disability, or sexual orientation is illegal, and any termination based on those criteria is a wrongful termination. Likewise, any termination based on your decision to report illegal activity, including discrimination, is considered retaliation, and is also a wrongful termination. Finally, if you have an employment contract that your employer breached, you may also be the victim of a wrongful termination.
You May Be Entitled to Getting Your Job Back, Lost Wages, and Punitive Damages
If you have been wrongfully terminated, you may be entitled to back pay and front pay damages, reinstatement to your position, emotional distress compensation, treble damages under the Minnesota Human Rights Act, punitive damages under Title VII, and your attorney fees and costs.
