Q: Can I sue my previous employer for unlawful termination, retaliation, and discrimination?
I was fired on 12/11/17 with the excuse of bad civility. I worked there 4 years and was never written up, suspended or disciplined for anything before and was never given a written termination letter. Also a week prior I filed a complaint against the supervisor and feel this was retaliation for filing a complaint. I was also out on workers comp for a month and had surgery. I been dealing with workers comp past 6 months and think this issue affected my employment also.
Given the brief facts that you outline, you could possibly have a claim for wrongful termination for pursuit of a workers' compensation claim; violation of the Family and Medical Leave Act, depending on the number of employees employed by your employer; and possibly retaliation, depending on the nature of your complaint about your supervisor. Please contact our office to provide more details.
