Knowledgeable Attorneys in Wrongful Termination Scenarios
As an employee, you cannot be fired for refusing to violate the law, and you often have legal protection for acting as a whistleblower. Terminating an employee in violation of a public policy is illegal and may give rise to a wrongful discharge lawsuit. Maryland is an at-will employment state, permitting employers to fire employees for nearly any reason, except for refusing to break the law and for reasons that are based on discrimination, retaliation, or in violation of an employment contract. However, this does not mean that workers do not have rights. If you were fired or forced to resign from your job, our attorneys may be able to help you take action against your former employer.
It is important to know your rights, and our experienced team of employment lawyers can help you understand if you have been unlawfully terminated and what your rights are. If you are interested in learning more about what you are entitled to under the law, please call our offices to schedule a consultation with an experienced attorney.
