Losing one’s job can be one of the most devastating events in life. The ensuing loss of livelihood and purpose can cause immeasurable financial and psychological harm. If the decision to terminate your employment was an unlawful one, you are entitled under the law to recoup all damages, monetary and emotional, that you incurred as a result of it. All individuals also have the right to be free from intimidation, harassment, discrimination and retaliation in the workplace. Employers that fail to take appropriate measures to ensure these rights can be held liable for any and all harm that you suffer.
