Wrongful Termination cases involve when an employee is terminated without a justifiable cause. Many employment contracts and/or relationships involve “at will” employment. “At will” means that a person can be terminated from their job for no reason at all. In “at will” employment situations an employer has the ability to terminate an employee without providing any justification or reason.
Sean Hennessey has successfully represented people terminated even in “at will” employment situations. Wrongful termination cases can involve situations where an employee, business partner or corporate executive is fired, demoted or laid off without good cause or reason. Many people are fired, demoted or laid off because of retaliation for reporting some type of wrongdoing “whistle- blowing”, petty personal differences or for some other illegitimate reason.
If you feel you have been demoted, laid off or fired based without a justifiable reason you need to contact the Law Office of Sean Hennessey IMMEDIATELY. There are strict time limits that need to be adhered to before a legitimate lawsuit can be filed against an employer for demoting, laying off or terminating an employee. In todays fragile economy the lose of job can be devastating to the terminated employee and their family. Do not let yourself become the victim of illegal or wrongful conduct on the part of your employer.
