Waukesha County Wrongful Termination Lawyers and Your Employee Rights
When an employer terminates an employee, many laws come into play. Even when an employment situation is at will, meaning there is probably not a contract or state statute governing the employee’s job, there are still many ways an employer can violate the law by firing an employee for the wrong reason. We can help determine if you were fired for the wrong reason and what action we will take to make things right for you.

Does My Situation Qualify as Wrongful Discharge?
While wrongful discharge laws are very limited in scope, there are alternative state or federal laws that may be applicable to your situation if your case does not warrant a claim for wrongful discharge:
- Do you believe you were fired in retaliation for filing a workers’ compensation claim or whistleblower claim?
- Did your employer allow hostile workplace conditions that caused you to quit, or were you terminated after reporting sexual harassment?
- Do you believe that your age was a determining factor in your layoff — while younger employees kept their jobs?
Our employment law attorneys have in-depth knowledge of the numerous vehicles for protecting and enforcing your rights as an employee and holding your employer or former employer accountable for the injustice.
