If you have been fired in retaliation for doing something that you had a legal right or responsibility to do, you may have a legal claim against your employer, and it is in your interests to consult an experienced employment lawyer before taking any other action.
Springfield wrongful termination attorney Raymond Lampert has extensive experience representing unlawfully fired employees at the trial and appellate level. He can help you determine whether you have a claim and, if so, pursue the compensation you deserve.
Missouri is an at-will employment state, which means employers generally have a right to fire employees without giving a reason. However, Missouri and federal laws do protect employees from being fired in retaliation for exercising certain rights. These rights include:
Complaining about real or perceived employment discrimination
Opposing sexual harassment and other forms of harassment
Making a claim for workers’ compensation benefits
Wrongful termination and retaliatory discharge are complex legal issues, and every case must be decided on its specific facts and circumstances. It is important to act quickly and contact an experienced lawyer so that he or she can start a prompt and thorough investigation.
