Wrongful Termination

Know your rights if you believe you have a wrongful termination case

Although many Massachusetts employees are “at-will,” there are exceptions to the at-will doctrine. There are also certain public policies that protect “at-will” employees from wrongful termination. There are many state and federal laws that provide rights to employees. If you believe you have been wrongfully terminated, it is important to know your rights.   We advise employees who know they are going to lose their jobs, or have already been laid off or fired.

There are short statutes of limitations for many wrongful termination claims. Many people make the mistake of thinking that they have a year or more to bring a claim. That just isn’t the case for many wrongful termination claims  Many cases have short time frames, such as 300 days, so you should not wait if you think you have a claim.  It is important to contact a lawyer as soon as you think you may have a claim or you may lose your rights.
