In general, most people are considered to be "at-will" employees. Simply put, this gives employers the right to fire an employee at any time and for any reason. However, there are legal exceptions to this rule and if you have been terminated for an illegal reason, you may be eligible for financial compensation. At the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, our Honolulu wrongful termination lawyer is committed to protecting the rights of employees throughout the state of Hawaii.
Experienced Representation in All Wrongful Termination Cases
When people have been fired, they may feel that they were mistreated or treated unfairly by their employer. However, due to their "at-will" classification, mere unfair treatment will not qualify for a valid wrongful termination claim. However, there are exceptions to the at-will rule, including cases involving:
- Sexual harassment and discrimination
- Disability discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Family and Medical Leave Act violations
- Retaliatory discharge following a whistleblower claim
When you come to the Law Offices of Scot Stuart Brower, we will thoroughly investigate your claim and let you know whether you have a case. We understand how to build an effective case and will fight to hold employers accountable for their legal actions. If you have been wrongfully terminated, you may be eligible for a wide range of damages, including lost wages and attorney's fees. If you are at all suspicious for why you were let go by an employer, reach out to us.
