It’s typical for many employment situations in this country to be at-will, which means the employer has the right to fire an employee for any reason at any time. However, these are typically for reasons like repeatedly showing up to work late or poor work performance. There are some reasons that employers cannot fire employees for. A person who thinks the reason they were fired was protected by law can file a lawsuit against their employer. These cases can take a long time. If you need wrongful termination lawsuit funding, Preferred Capital Funding may be able to help you.
Usually, the employer has more money than the employee and can afford to draw the case out, but this negatively affects the employee. When a lawsuit extends over months, you may start to fall behind in bills. Your expenses don’t stop because you’re currently involved in a litigation process. This could prompt you to want to settle your case early and use that settlement to pay off the bills. But, settling early could typically result in compensation that’s less than you deserve. You shouldn’t be forced to take a less than favorable settlement due to outside financial stress. Our pre-settlement funding is meant to give you some financial relief so you can focus on your lawsuit.
When Is a Termination Wrongful?
There are several situations where termination is considered wrongful. Employers cannot discriminate, so they cannot fire someone based on the employee’s gender, skin color, religion, ethnicity, or age. Employees are also protected from retaliation. If an employee was a whistleblower and came forward with something against the employer or the company, they are protected. If the employer breached the employee’s contract, the employee may have grounds for a lawsuit.
There’s also the situation of constructive discharge. This happens when the employer has made the employee’s job so terrible that the employee feels they needed to leave it. They can file wrongful termination claims, too.
While all these protections are put in place for employees, this doesn’t always deter employers from firing them for unjust reasons. This can be confusing and leave you not knowing what to do next. Coming forward with a wrongful termination claim can be intimidating, but you deserve to protect your rights.
You want to make sure you have the time you need so you can get the full compensation that you deserve. There are many factors that the courts consider in these cases, like the evidence for you claim, your income, the time you worked for the company, and if you have any eyewitnesses. To give yourself this time, you may want to consider getting lawsuit funding so you can afford your everyday expenses during this process.
