Springfield Wrongful Termination Lawyer
Missouri Employee Rights Attorney
As an employee for an employer in the State of Missouri, you have the right to file an informal or formal complaint with your personnel director if you feel your civil rights are being violated on the job. If your employer retaliates by firing you or creating a hostile work environment designed to force you into quitting, you may have a legitimate claim for wrongful termination.
Missouri is an 'at will' employment state. That means that employees have the right to quit a job without recourse and, for the most part, employers have the right to terminate employment without cause. However, if the reason for termination is based on a violation of your civil rights, you have protections under federal civil rights law to protect yourself through the courts.
The employment law team at Hall Ansley Rodgers & Sweeney is recognized as one of southwestern Missouri's preeminent employee rights litigation firms representing plaintiffs in cases involving wrongful termination, hostile work environment, retaliation and discrimination in communities throughout central and southwestern Missouri. Workers have been coming to our lawyers for legal protection against employers who break state and federal law. We are proud of our record of recovering many of the most significant employment law verdicts and settlements in the state.
Is Fighting Your Termination Really Worth It?
Most people who have been illegally fired seek financial compensation for lost earnings and punitive damages, rather than their job back. In addition to compensation, we will seek full and fair payment of your attorneys fees as part of the final settlement or jury award. We work strictly on a contingency basis, receiving our fees as a percentage of your settlement or jury award. It will cost you nothing to have us represent you. We even offer a free case evaluation with no obligation to retain us.
Fired for Filing a Workers' Compensation Claim
Firing a worker for filing a workers' compensation claim is one of the most common violations of employment law in the state. If you are facing retaliation or threats because you have gone to your employer to report a workplace injury, talk to an attorney at our firm right away. We have a Missouri workers' compensation team ready to help you recover the benefits you are entitled to, while protecting your civil rights on the job.
