Do You Have A Case For Wrongful Discharge?
Wrongful termination as a legal claim is different in almost every state, depending on how the state court looks at the facts. At the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, law office of Logan & Logan, our attorneys offer a free initial telephone consultation to talk with you about your case and determine if there is anything we can do to help you.
In Pennsylvania, employment is at-will, and there are very few cases that would rise to the level of a wrongful termination claim. However, there are some situations where an employee may have a legal claim:
- If you are wrongfully discharged for filing a legal claim (for example, a workers’ compensation claim)
- If your employer fires you in retaliation for complaining about something that is a recognized legal right (for example, for complaining about discrimination based on age, sex, race, religion, national origin, or disability)
- If you are discharged for reporting a safety violation (for example, if your job is to report safety violations and you are fired for doing so)
- If you have an employment contract
If you think you may have been wrongfully terminated, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible while the facts are still fresh. There are specific time limits for filing a claim, depending on the kind of case.
