Though there are situations where an employer has the right to fire an employee, when they do so for improper or illegal reasons, the employees may have an actionable wrongful termination claim. The employment attorneys at Santilli Law Group know the challenges faced in a wrongful termination claim. However, not every termination is wrongful. That is why you need an experienced team like the Santilli Law Group to assess your claim and determine whether you have experienced a wrongful termination. If they can determine that you have, they can prosecute that claim fully and work towards getting you the best results.
It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against an employee on the basis of his or her race, gender, national origin, age or sexual preference. Employment discrimination claims stem from actual employment practices like hiring, promotion, demotion and termination. You need to not only prove that the employment decisions were made based upon the race, gender, national origin or sexual preference of the employee as opposed to a legitimate business reason.
Employers will inevitably oppose employment discrimination claims. We at Santilli Law Group are familiar with the arguments employers use and have years of experience countering their tactics. This experience allows us to give our clients the best representation possible.
It is illegal for a company to discriminate against an individual based on a physical or mental disability. As with employment discrimination cases, Santilli Law Group’s successful prosecution of disability claims centers on the ability of the claimant to associate the actions of the employer with the claimant’s disability. The employee must prove that the actions taken against them were a result of their disability and not for another reason.
Most people do not understand what exactly constitutes sexual harassment. Sexual harassment and discrimination not only cover overt actions like unwanted touching and comments, but also covers actions like displaying questionably images and comments of a sexual nature. The Employment Division of Santilli Law Group has dealt with many sexual harassment and discrimination claims. This experience helps our clients get what they deserve for the sexual harassment they have endured.
