In Missouri, countless people lose their jobs every year. There are many reasons this can occur, but sadly not all of these are just. In fact, a huge number of employees are fired for reasons that are not only unfair but also illegal. However, it can seem hard to prove that your employer has acted outside the law, and you may be more focused on finding new employment.
Nevertheless, you deserve fair treatment at work and if you have been wrongfully dismissed it is vital to stand up for your rights. Aside from anything else, a successful claim could relieve some of the financial burden of being suddenly unemployed. Furthermore, it may help to protect future employees from the same treatment.
As this article on employment law mentions, you may also be able to file a claim of wrongful termination if your employer failed to follow existing policies surrounding dismissal and disciplinary processes. As such, it is important to be aware of any handbooks or codes of practice in place to which your employer may be expected to adhere. If these rules were breached in a way that resulted in your dismissal, you might have a case.
Of course, all of this can be difficult to figure out alone, especially when you are still feeling overwhelmed by the situation and concerned about your future. However, you do not need to handle these matters without guidance, as an attorney may be able to assist you with your claim. He or she can examine the details of your situation and may be able to help you collect the information you need in order to pursue a fair and favorable resolution to your situation. There may even be a chance of you being reinstated to your former position.
